NIM can now provide full CopyrightChain(s) services in mainland China.
We cannot use the name as we have not obtained an ICP license*.
However, we have successfully set up from Hong Kong.
We can provide mainland China with complete full licensing services for streaming and UGC upload to, for instance, TikTok (Douyin).
The exciting part is that copyrights registered in Wyoming under NIM’s master/series LLC program will NOT (to be confirmed) be regarded as copyrights but instead as a company establishing a business in China.
NIM’s ready when the content is!
*ICP license (Internet Content Provider) is a permit issued by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) to permit China-based websites to operate in China.

One “interesting” aspect of the Chinese market is their tradition of not paying artists.
Instead, artists are tipped (called” red envelopes”). This is reflected in some Chinese DSPs where music is free, but listeners donate to artists and music they like.Plus, it is prevalent in Chinese music marketing to team up with companies and use the songs in commercials.
China is not yet in the scope of the collecting societies.
Everybody is still trying to figure out how to approach them…
NIM know how!
It has been (so far) almost impossible to bring a class action for copyright infringement on a global scale successfully. One of the reasons is costly and time-consuming. Another is that the amount in question is often tiny compared to the costs. The big royalty earners like “Mama Mia” will not have this problem as they are usually too big to be seriously infringed on.
In the newsletter, we used an example for regulated registration of the master company Musical Admin LLC with 10 000 copyrights under administration.
That is 10 000 LLCs in series, each operating as a separate legal entity.
This means (in theory) that Musical Admin LLC can file a class action on behalf of the 10 000 copyright registered as LLCs.
So if each Copyright has an estimated $1000 per year in copyright infringement from (for instance) Tencent Music*, the class action will be for $10 million.
And since each Copyright is under the company laws of the USA and Tencent Music is a company registered on the USA stock market.
The class action will not be for Copyright Infringement but for loss of revenue and dividend.
I predict settlement before lunch break!😁
