Origen

Music for Apps

We simplify the process of handling creative works in your App by clearing the rights of music use, so you don't have to.

What is Origen?

Origen is the world's first Media as a Service platform (MaaS) for App Developers to handle all of the complexities involved with sourcing and managing the use of creative assets in applications.

We fixed the problem with copyright by developing a technology that allows developers to get licensed access to any creative asset they want in minutes.

It's designed to simplify the process of handling creative works in your app by clearing the rights of use and reuse of music, video, images, and text, so you don't have to.

With Origen, you know that every creative asset your end-users are accessing to create new works is properly licensed, removing your risk of copyright infringement.

Music for Apps - Beta

Dealing with the issues of sourcing rights for expanded use of music within an app can be daunting. So it's good to know that whether you've already built an app or you're in the early stages, there is an alternative.

Regardless of whether you want to add music to user-generated content or build a curated streaming app, OCL's Origen SDK will automatically and instantly handle the sourcing, clearing, identification, licensing, reporting, and auditing of music assets.

And it means there's no copyright infringement, no theft, less piracy, and no orphan works. It means apps can be built using legitimate creative assets without the holdup of a complicated sourcing process. Say goodbye to years of negotiations, huge upfront advances, or building infrastructure to source and report usage. Just use the Origen SDK in your app, and we'll do the rest.

A Superior Solution With a Catalogue to Match

We have access to catalogues from some of the world's leading rights-owners like:


Plus, we're continually adding new labels and publishers meaning you get to choose from a great selection of artists and tracks.
