Melody Pods was conceived from witnessing how many businesses out there were frustrated by how unreasonably hard in ways getting good music licensed into your business.
I have helped many clients and friends in business over the years who have been frustrated by having insistent letters from performing rights societies that they must pay them, and even to the point of threatening legal action without any basis, because they didn’t have a performing rights licensed with them.
They were frustrated at the regular threatening letters and how performing rights societies seemed to refuse to read replies or understand how they were using music not contracted to a performing rights society for royalty collection. The people on the end of the phone simply didn’t understand the business they were in, they were trained to understand there were no alternatives.
The simple reason in all cases was that they had no legal requirement to have a license for playing music they weren’t playing.
Not only that, I could see how businesses wanted to focus on their business instead of spending a lot of time discovering new music regularly and getting that music used in their business, especially if they needed different music styles in different zones or locations in their business.
The only solutions out there either fed them a batch of music where there was little choice of the music being played. The choice was, A,B,C or D so if you didn’t like a particular track or album in any of those options you as a business just had to gulp it down and move on. There was no choice to skip or make sure the tracks wouldn’t repeat.
At the other end there are services that give you a vast choice, but then you are in to spending a lot of time making your own choice of music, track by tracks which is costly on your time.
So we knew there was a need to build a business level service that helped businesses get the right music into their business in a simple way that didn’t cost them a lot of time and effort, without costly lock-in hardware, long term contracts, costly consulting and simplified the billing with one single bill that covers both a service and the licensing in one.
