Since its founding in 2017, modern music copyright and rights management company Muserk has grown its network in Nashville and beyond. Now doubling down on its roots and reaffirming its commitment to Music City, USA, the company proudly opens the doors to its new headquarters at the Muserk House, nestled on historic Music Row.

“It’s been a long-time dream to move our headquarters to Music Row. When I started building Muserk here in Nashville, I was a tried and true NYC’er who commuted back and forth each month. Now Nashville is home for my family, and I want Muserk to be a proud Nashville company,” says Muserk Founder and CEO Paul Goldman. “As a global rights administrator with global customers and local connections, Muserk has the opportunity to help connect Nashville people with new opportunities abroad.”

More than just a headquarters, the Muserk House is a salute to the essence and tradition of Nashville’s old-school music business. While outsiders move in and new businesses open sleek high-rise offices, Muserk’s choice to settle in a bungalow on Music Row is a nod to the rich tradition of the local music industry that, at its heart, is underpinned by songwriting and copyright. It's a commitment to preserving the soul of Nashville's music scene amid a landscape of change.

While the opening of the Muserk House is a commitment to preserving the soul of Nashville’s music scene amidst a wave of change, Muserk's investment in Music Row isn't just about nostalgia; it's a strategic move in anticipation of Nashville's rise as a global music and business hub. While the city is renowned for its country music heritage, its potential as a worldwide epicenter for music and business is undeniable. The Muserk House stands as a beacon of this future, symbolizing both cultural and economic growth for Nashville.

“Nashville's music scene indeed thrives on the talent of its songwriters, who are central to its identity and success. Muserk, which deals with global rights management, plays a crucial role in ensuring that songwriters and artists are fairly compensated for the use of their work worldwide,” says Joe Galante, veteran music industry executive.

At its core, Muserk represents the convergence of music and technology. Since its inception, the company has revolutionized rights management, offering a modern solution to an outdated system. By managing copyrights for international rights owners and conducting business on a global scale, Muserk serves as a bridge between Nashville's storied past and the music industry’s projected future of innovation and global growth.

As the music industry evolves, Muserk remains steadfast in its mission to uphold the values that have defined Nashville for generations. With the opening of the Muserk House, the company not only secures its place in Music City but also reaffirms its commitment to keeping the old-school, grassroots vibe of the local industry alive and thriving.

The music industry’s jump from physical to digital kicked off a scramble to track and streamline the flow of royalties back to the artist. Still, the system for collecting royalties is an antiquated process, incapable of matching today’s modern technology standards. Muserk, the global leader in digital rights management for music and video, challenges this status quo–bringing the industry up to speed by pioneering AI-driven solutions to collect royalties and pay artists faster.

With over 50 global contracts, Muserk manages over 12 million copyrights worldwide. Its US Patented AI-powered platform, Blue Matter, was built specifically to handle the ever-changing workflow of rights management on a global scale–protecting, matching, and monetizing content for all rightsholders across all media formats.

Founder and CEO Paul Goldman worked for two decades as an award-winning television composer, launching a full service audio and music post-production business that worked on big projects like The MTV Video Music Awards. Just one televised award show is a massive undertaking that requires several licensed tracks, from musical opening numbers to bumpers before and after commercial breaks. Goldman’s production company worked on the VMAs for eight straight years. 

By the time he was 40, Goldman was running a high-level multi-studio business. Despite decades of experience in the music and entertainment industries, he still didn't know anything about royalties or rights management. It wasn’t until a friend asked him about his publishing royalties that he realized he had been missing out on decades worth of royalty income. 

“I contacted ASCAP to inquire about my royalties, but they didn’t have a way of tracking the hundreds of credits to my name by that point so we agreed to a small settlement,” explains Goldman. “It was at this point that I realized there must be a lot of other artists like me who have no idea that they have royalties waiting to be claimed.”

Hoping to prevent other composers and artists from running into the same issues he had faced, Goldman launched Muserk, and with an understanding of legal copyright from his previous advertising work, he found rights management to be a natural fit. Today, Muserk represents copyrights from over 50 nations across 98 territories.

“As a result of the industry’s outdated rights management infrastructure, 50% of royalties are lost and never make it to their rightful owners,” says Goldman. “Muserk is here to do what’s right–to help artists collect what is theirs and to create an ecosystem that makes that possible.”
