Public Performance Karaoke Legalities
Consider for a moment that there are currently more than 300 lawsuits filed against suspected infringing karaoke operators, and another 300 investigations completed and ready to file. To date, more than $1.5 million has been paid in settlements to karaoke manufacturers from alleged infringing KJ’s and venues.
Investigators are in the field now inspecting karaoke shows across the nation. When they come to your show, you’ll never know they’ve been there until you’re served with a lawsuit.
Why risk litigation that will cost you thousands of dollars to defend? Karaoke Cloud Pro is the first and only legal professional karaoke subscription platform, shielding you from infringement claims and giving you confidence that you’re completely legal.
The piracy issue is important, for a lot of reasons.
Piracy has driven down the value of a show night. Venue owners just assume you stole your library and have zero investment in your music, and if you price your library anywhere close to what it’s worth, there’s a pirate in your town with zero investment that the venue owner can hire for less. Honest KJ’s can no longer earn a living wage on their shows. Infringement suits from music publishers have driven US karaoke manufacturers into bankruptcy or reduced them to shadows of their former selves.
Joining us will not only save you money over time and increase the value of your shows, but also signal that you’re just as concerned as we are that piracy, left unchecked, will spell the doom of the karaoke industry.
