Cosynd, the fastest and most affordable way for creators to protect themselves and their work, today announced a new partnership with Repost by SoundCloud, a next generation artist services business providing tools and services to help independent creators grow their careers. The partnership will empower Repost to further safeguard their community of independent creators by providing discounts to Cosynd’s suite of services to help register their copyrights, establish ownership, and create vital agreements that will help protect their life’s work and advance them to the next stage in their careers.

“While it's easier to create, upload, and share content more than ever before, protecting that content for most creators still feels unapproachable, complicated, and expensive. Equipping creators with the seamless tools that we offer at Cosynd, helps them to secure their rights and ultimately their income.” said Jessica Sobhraj, Cosynd Co-founder and CEO. “We are thrilled to partner with Repost by SoundCloud and to work with their passionate team in an effort to make it easier for the independent community to take these necessary actions to build, grow and protect their careers.”

“Since the launch of Repost by SoundCloud we have seen immense growth in artists and labels distributing their music from SoundCloud into accompanying platforms. We're thrilled to take it to the next level with Cosynd to help artists have more control over their rights in a way that is cost effective and simple for creators everywhere,” said Jeff Ponchick, VP & Head of Repost.

During a time of unprecedented hardship and changing regulations for the creative community, the two companies have decided to double-down on educating and preparing creators to protect themselves and their copyrights. Proper agreements and registrations are necessary, particularly if a creator’s work has been stolen or used without their permission. In March of 2019, the U.S Supreme Court ruled that creators must register their copyrights and obtain a decision regarding their application with the U.S Copyright Office as a prerequisite before filing an infringement lawsuit. Typically, completing the registration process could take several months and can be nearly 20x more expensive if creators wait until a legal issue arises to attempt a rushed filing. By partnering with Cosynd, Repost by SoundCloud community members will be able to efficiently register all of their content (music, videos, images, literature) at a discounted rate through a seamless, guided process. While traditional services may charge upwards of $150 per registration, Repost by SoundCloud artists will be able to register copyrights for $25 (plus federal filing fees) through this partnership.

Repost by SoundCloud artists will also benefit from Cosynd’s digital platform where they can create, negotiate, and sign customized copyright agreements with their fellow collaborators to create affordable work for hire agreements, producer agreements, or premium split sheets.
