Faq’s For Creators
DRM stands for Digital Rights Management. Our initial focus is on motivational, self-development, and spoken word content.
MindsetDRM works with Speakers and Creators. With Speakers, we put agreements in place to offer access to their content to Creators who follow their guidelines and share royalties. With Creators, we put agreements in place that offer that Creator access to Speaker content, and ability to earn revenue in perpetuity for permitted creative work they post while under the agreement, given that Creator follows content guidelines and shares royalties.
MindsetDRM was started by two YouTube Creators and an academic speaker. The goal was to create technology tools to reduce copyright infringement and that help grow the creator economy
We offer a solution that works for Speakers and Creators. This means Speakers get to set guidelines and earn royalties when their content is used. Also, Creators reduce their risk by receiving ongoing permission from MindsetDRM speakers. All of this is possible because of proprietary technology that uses four powerful software modules for one solution.
MindsetDRM is built as a beneficial ecosystem for Creators and Speakers. We’ve used technology and genuine care for our clients to build trust, cooperation, and effectiveness.
Partnering with MindsetDRM
Please connect with us here. Should your platform or channel fit our services, we will help you join the program. That means, you will have access to content libraries, will need to connect your channel, and follow Speaker guidelines. From there, keep growing your platform.
- Let’s use YouTube as an example. The way it currently works is Creators post content on their channels and earn money as those videos get views. Even if the video they post is using someone else’s content, the Creator receives all the revenue. What MindsetDRM does is make arrangements between Speakers and Creators to benefit both sides. Specifically, we help 1) split a portion of content revenue (in the form of royalties) with the content owner, and 2) provide permission to the Creator so they know they are allowed to use someone else’s content. This removes a lot of risk from creators and channels.
Technology does the hard part, allowing all of this sharing to occur with minimal effort. Specifically, MindsetDRM will automatically calculate royalty splits, invoice appropriately, and transfer funds to our partner Speakers.
Without permission, Creators posting other people’s intellectual property are in violation of copyright laws. As a result, the content owner has the ability to take down that content, or seek to receive all revenue earned. MindsetDRM works to create a win-win relationship for Speakers and Creators, recognizing both offer value to each other.
If your channel receives a copyright notice, we’ll do our best to help you work through it. Here’s what it means and what you can do:
What it means: A track you’ve uploaded has been flagged by someone who claims to be a rights owner of that content. To remove the notice, below are some suggested next steps.
- Contact MindsetDRM here. We may have a relationship with that speaker or we may be able to establish one. We can then work to create an agreement between your channel and their content.
- The other option is to remove the content from your channel.
If you don’t have permission to use the content posted on your channel, contact MindsetDRM here. We may have an agreement already in place with that speaker. If not, we may be able to establish a relationship.
Receiving permission to use the content of a signed MindsetDRM speaker is easy. Simply agree to that speaker’s guidelines and become part of MindsetDRM’s royalty partner program.
For signed Speakers and Creators, MindsetDRM offers access to our studio. Within that studio you will find: content libraries, speaker lists, creator lists, content usage, analytics, revenue sharing, and contact management.
The MindsetDRM studio is a full content management platform based on four powerful technology modules: Creator Studio, Automated Voice to Text Transcription, Digital Fingerprinting, Content Search and Match.
This technology allows us to manage spoken word content, ID that content, find it when used on popular platforms, calculate content revenue and royalties.
We believe the creator economy will continue to rapidly grow into the future. As a result, MindsetDRM is planning to expand our services to different formats of digital intellectual property, including: video, music, and images.
