Introducing Promo.ly piracy protection

By | Development updates | No Comments

In May of 2013, Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’ leaked online, weeks before the official release. Since then, we’ve seeing more and more material finding its way to the public domain way before originally intended.

However, with Promo.ly’s piracy protection, leaks will become a thing of the past.

Before your recipients can download a release using Promo.ly, unique inaudible watermarks are added to the music file, specific to that individual contact. Should your release find its way onto share or stream sites, our system can pull the identification signature from the sound file, exposing the leak’s source. What’s more, our piracy protection is free to all Promo.ly tiers.

Existing clients can contact us to submit a traceback request.

‘Download as ZIP’ and ‘Save to Dropbox’ functionality added

We’ve been working on a way to help recipients download the latest promos as quickly as possible, and today we’ve done it. We all know how ‘Download as ZIP’ works, but we’ve also added ‘save to Dropbox’ functionality.

With a touch of a button, the release you’ve received on Promo.ly will be sent to Dropbox, and it only takes a single second to show up in your Dropbox account, ready to listen on your Phone or PC – perfect for DJs checking promos on the go.

As if that wasn’t enough, Promo.ly clients will soon be able to further reap the benefits of our Dropbox integration. We’re adding the ability for clients to include their own Dropbox referral codes within a sign up button on their mailouts. Free Dropbox storage, anyone?
