My Statement On TuneRegistry
I have received several messages regarding poor customer support and unresolved technical issues from TuneRegistry users who’ve signed up as a result of my evangelism over the platform that I co-founded to empower indie rights-holders, especially DIY musicians, with a tool to be their own publisher.
I am making this brief statement because I feel it is necessary.
I founded TuneRegistry in 2015 and the 1.0 platform launched March 2017 at SXSW. It was acquired by HAAWK in November 2017. The original co-founders, including myself, were hired into HAAWK as employees (we also brought over some of our dev contractors) as part of the deal. Long story short, things did not work out and all of us departed Haawk the first week of March 2018.
Over the last nearly 3 months, TuneRegistry has had no maintenance nor sufficient customer support and it breaks my heart because my co-founders and I sacrificed years of our time, energy, effort and our own money (we completely bootstrapped it) to bring TuneRegistry to market.
The good news is, I am in the process of acquiring TuneRegistry back from Haawk and running it independently once again.
We have many industry partners and initiatives lined up to make TuneRegistry bigger and better. The deal should be closed in the coming weeks and I will have TuneRegistry under my control once again.
TuneRegistry will continue to enable artists to be their own publisher in the United States, enable artists to collect 100% of their US publishing royalties and retain 100% of their copyrights until such time as you choose to share your legacy with a worthy publisher.
