Businesses Must License With Spoken Giants

Spoken Giants works to protect the public performance, copying, and synchronization of our members creative assets.  Comedy, podcasts, and other spoken word creative assets are used across so many distribution vehicles, such as Digital Service Providers, terrestrial broadcasters, and more.  Under United States Copyright law spoken word creative works are fully protected just as music has been for decades.

But ... compared to music and other media, Spoken Word assets are under-represented in today's sonic landscape and more importantly key rights, provided for under copyright law are not paid by the very channels that obtain great value from using comedy works, podcasts, and other spoken word assets. Hardworking artists, performers, and rights owners have missed out on their legal and rightful licensing opportunities, and as a result, are robbed of the royalties they deserve.

Spoken Giants is in business to serve our members making sure this wrong is righted.
