German label and music services company !K7 Records has inked a deal with anti-piracy group AudioLock.
The partnership will bring !K7’s own label, as well as its and label partners, discounted access to AudioLock’s service.
The deal extends existing work between the two companies: in addition to helping protect !K7 artists like Nina Kraviz and Kruder & Dorfmeister against piracy, AudioLock was responsible for managing the anti-piracy on recent album Adrian Thaws from Tricky (pictured), released via the German company.
According to Google’s recent Transparency Report, AudioLock now removes infringing links from more domains than any other independent music specific anti-piracy service.
!K7 Records COO Tom Nieuweboer said: “We are happy that we can offer our labels an easy to manage and integrated anti-piracy solution so they can focus on their campaigns without worrying about leaking and piracy.”
AudioLock partner and director Tristan Hunt commented: “Protecting indie labels is integral to our ethos and work so it’s fantastic to partner with such an iconic label and distributor as !K7.
“This new integration will immediately help save time and money for our many shared clients whilst also helping drive their sales.”Music Business Worldwide
