Content ID and Copyright Protection
I'm not sure if this has already been covered in another thread, but how can/will Musicoin be able to protect the official copyright holders of the music on the site? In essence, making sure the appropriate people are getting paid - and not scammers who upload other peoples hard work..
Incorporating music P.R.O.'s like BMI/Ascap/Socan/etc into the mix could help with knowing who the appropriate register of a musical work is, imo.
May even get the musicians a second payment through those services from the collection of Royalties per stream.
Could also help with charting on the billboard charts?

Don't worry about scammers, we've already got that covered. If you find a suspicious material you can notify firstname.lastname@example.org

@ivan Thanks Ivan. can you go into detail about how that kind of activity will be covered - as we the user will not have time to go through 100's (hopefully 1000's ) of artist profiles

Each upload goes through the system, filtered by the title, description, content (database), and eventually the team listens to that release. When a copyright content is found, the release becomes blocked and the author gets a warning if this continues it will be banned. Simple as that.
That's a full-time job keeping up with almost 4000 artists, but this system is constantly evolving so that the protection becomes better. Personally, I don't tolerate scammers or imposters, this should be a platform for real musicians.
Cool, Thank u for the detailed reply. That info is very much appreciated. Listening to all those songs would certainly be a full-time job! Wow. It’s nice to hear that the system is evolving - and I hope one day it can be a streamlined automated process so that the team can relax on those personal “by hand” ID checks and be able to focus on other great aspects of the platform (like getting these audio streams to count towards charting on the Billboard charts?) Cheers!
