Become a SPONSOR of the Musical Ecosystem and INVEST
in (and even OWN) your favorite music!
Music Cow, the world’s first Copyright Royalty Sharing Platform, is a space where music creators, fans, and investors share copyright royalties and sponsor the creators to create a healthy K-Pop ecosystem by establishing a virtuous cycle. In the current Korean music market, most consumers tend to enjoy their favorite music via ‘streaming,’ rather than ‘owning’ them. Under this market structure, many music creators & artists are suffering serious financial difficulties, and the overall market size of the music industry is way smaller than that of developed countries. Music Cow was created to establish a healthier & more beautiful musical ecosystem for everyone!
The ‘VALUE’ of a VIRTUOUS CYCLE of music that we make ‘TOGETHER’
Music Cow aims to create a greater value for music creators, fans, and investors through a unique system called the ‘Copyright Royalty Auction.’ Artists, music-loving fans, and investors will share the copyright royalties, and over 50% of the total amount raised through the auction (by the fans & investors) will be directly delivered to the artists right after the auction. The rest will be used for various activities such as supporting the K-Pop ecosystem, etc. Therefore, those who participate in the auction can ‘own’ their favorite music and earn copyright royalties while contributing to the creative ecosystem! Furthermore, the auction will increase the public’s interest towards the K-Pop, Music industry, which will positively influence the market and result in the rise of copyright royalties, ultimately creating a healthy ecosystem where all members can coexist.
‘Music Cow,’ the PERFECT platform for INVESTORS
In the era of low-interest rates & economic recession, the APY (Annual Percentage Yield) of installment savings are often unsatisfactory, and various funds end up being unstable and not safe. Compared to high-risk products that fail to meet investment demands, Music Cow, which is a leader of IP Financing, offers a new alternative with its stable & solid returns + high yield.
-Stable, Solid Return + Potential Expected Return
Thanks to the expansion of the copyright market, Music Cow’s investment in copyright royalties ranks high in terms of Return on Investment among all financial products in Korea. Also, due to the nature of copyright & copyright royalties (protected for 70 years after the original artist’s death), investors will receive the royalties on a monthly basis without any loss. Moreover, various factors such as the public’s increased interest towards the music market due to Music Cow Auctions, remakes of existing songs, etc., may lead to a significant increase in potential revenue (copyright royalties). Music Cow is an innovative cultural investment platform that allows the users to enjoy music, earn high & stable returns, and even have high hopes for potential returns.
“Average Return (Actual Royalties) compared to the Auction Purchase Price” of Music Cow Users between 2018-19: 9.1% (Pre-tax)
Additional Return Rate achieved through user-to-user transactions: 18.4%
* “Copyright Yield Return Rate” reflect the fans’ ‘voluntary’ high purchase prices. “User-to-User Transaction Return Rate” refers to the additional sales returns, excluding copyright royalty revenues.
-Predictable + Can be Cashed 24/7 = ‘BEST INVESTMENT’
Members can make ‘TRANSPARENT INVESTMENTS’ by judging the validity of their investments based on the detailed copyright royalty information provided by Music Cow. After purchasing the copyright shares, members of Music Cow can generate stable & long-term profit from monthly copyright royalties, while also earning short-term sales profit from user-to-user transactions.
