WE ARE A NON-PROFIT INITIATIVE OF LEADING ACADEMIC INSTITUTIONS, MUSIC AND MEDIA INDUSTRY ORGANIZATIONS, CREATORS, TECHNOLOGISTS, ENTREPRENEURS AND POLICY EXPERTS WHO LOVE AND VALUE MUSIC.


WE ARE CREATING AN OPEN-SOURCE PROTOCOL FOR THE UNIFORM IDENTIFICATION OF MUSIC RIGHTS HOLDERS AND CREATORS.


WE ARE NOT
BUILDING A DATABASE OR A SPECIFIC PRODUCT. THE OUTCOME OF OMI WILL BE API SPECIFICATIONS TO ENABLE INDUSTRY PLATFORM INTEROPERABILITY.

WE BELIEVE
