How it works:
Songs are encoded by a computer, which creates a digital ´fingerprint´ that is used by BDS monitor sites. These monitors listen to a station´s frequency 24/7. Whenever a song is played on one of these stations, BDS searches its ´fingerprint´ database and logs the date and time the station aired the song.
BDS is currently detecting over 1.5 million songs per week on radio.
Why is this important?
BDS consequently ensures that you receive any and all royalties you are owed.
