Our goal at LyricsSeal is simple:

  • We aim for the lyrics industry to move towards licensing of at least the most trafficked properties.
  • We make the licensing terms more transparent and provide a tool to validate licensing.
  • We strive to create public awareness among consumers about the benefits of choosing licensed lyrics sites.
  • We endeavor to increase revenues for all stakeholders.
  • We protect the intellectual property of songwriters and publishers.
