Here at Pex, we have built the largest audio-visual search engine in the world allowing creators, musicians and rightsholders to understand the usage of their content and help them to earn more while exposing their content to wider audiences.
We are building on this legacy of digital content identification and management to develop a market-making product we call the Attribution Engine, a three-sided marketplace built to bring rightsholders, platforms, and creators together and simplify the existing licensing process. By making ownership information more transparent and readily available, bringing scale and consistency to the licensing process, and ensuring that copyright disputes are resolved quickly and cost-effectively, we believe that the successful launch of this product will position Pex to become the Visa of Digital Rights.
