Untangling Complex Content Rights with FilmTrack

Back to INDUSTRY INSIGHTS

The intricacies of managing content rights can pose significant challenges for even the most established media companies. The process becomes even more daunting when companies have a vast content portfolio that spans different genres, regions, and platforms. For such organizations, rights management isn't just an administrative task – it's an essential part of business operations, directly impacting sales and distribution efforts.

Consider the journey of Imagicomm Entertainment, a distinguished distribution branch of a major network. As their content landscape shifted, they faced unique challenges but ultimately transitioned to a cutting-edge rights management solution.

  • A surge in content volume
  • Different rights and agreements for diverse content
  • Overlapping rights and legal complications
  • Sales teams struggling with accurate content availability

Simply put, Imagicomm's growth demanded a game-changing solution.
