In 2017, Do The Rights Thing was created to help small to medium sized record labels, and independent artists understand their rights, register their rights and process their royalties to ensure correct and accurate payments.
Lucilla Green, MD of Do The Rights Thing, has had extensive royalties experience, working as Royalties Manager at digital rights collection agency Merlin Network where she helped hundreds of record labels globally understand their royalties and ensure correct payments were being made from DSP’s to Merlin, and by Merlin to the labels. She has also worked as Business Development Manager at The Music Royalty Co and Korrect Royalty Software, where she experienced the difficulties music companies go through when trying to understand and process their royalties; clean metadata, accurate reporting, correct rates, integration with third party delivery platforms. She has helped independent artists register their rights with royalty collection societies and understand royalty payments. Alongside running her business, she is working with independent artists to create workshops and online resources which will educate independent DIY artists on their rights, royalties and how to build more sustainable careers in the digital music industry.
