How We Remove Your Risk

a done for you service...

Got questions?
Well, we've got answers

Can one TikTok video really cost my brand £Millions in damages?

Yes! Rihanna’s brand Fenty was taken to court for using 1 song in an Instagram post by Rihanna advertising her brand’s accessories. On average each violation is $150,000 in damages and is typically into the millions.

Yes it is. Much in the same way that you would need a commercial license to use music on a TV commercial, the same principle applies to Tik Tok & Instagram. Most brands are unaware of this problem.

Is This A Serious Threat To My Business?

Yes unfortunately it is. There are multiple cases of Music Labels suing brands for using their licensed music on their Tik Tok & Instagram profile, collabs or ads. Ofra Cosmetics were recently sued for $49M and are a relatively smaller brand.

Warner Music accused Bang of 
violating its copyrights in 187 songs by popular musicians including The Weeknd, Justin Bieber and Dua Lipa. WMG requested either actual money damages or statutory damages of up to $150,000 per song, as well as a court order to permanently block Bang from using its music.

The total case is $28M

After signing up, we run our software across your social profiles, typically Tik Tok/Instagram/Facebook. We will highlight all the potential copyright infringements.

You can also use the info to discuss with your legal counsel.
