Digital Service Provider Audits

Prager Metis conducts royalty audits of digital service providers (DSPs) to verify DSP compliance with contract terms and copyright regulations. Clients for these DSP audits can be any entity that has a direct audit right (the right to audit the DSP) and that receives royalties directly from the DSP for licensed content, such as major record labels, music publishers, book publishers, video game publishers, content aggregators, film & television studios, and royalty collection organizations around the world.

Clients can rest assured that we can handle any electronic books, records and data that DSPs provide from their systems for our review.  We have extensive experience analyzing large volumes and varied types of data.
