IFPI CTO Richard Gooch talks music metadata on The Music Ally Podcast

IFPI CTO Richard Gooch joined journalist Joe Sparrow on The Music Ally Podcast to talk all things music metadata

“If you’re listening to the radio there in Berlin and you hear a Jamaican track played, there is a mechanism in place for the rights holder in Jamaica to get paid for that – that’s because of the metadata.”

Hear Richard Gooch discuss IFPI’s work to develop and roll-out the systems to improve the accuracy and efficiency of the way music metadata is shared around the world.
