GETTY IMAGES and SOUNDCLOUD have entered into a collaboration that unites the audio content in SOUNDCLOUD's community of more than 20 million registered users with GETTY IMAGES' global distribution channels and expertise in licensing digital media. The partnership provides media, advertisers, designers and creatives with the ability to license fresh, unique and original audio and music through GETTY IMAGES MUSIC the moment it is created.
"GETTY IMAGES MUSIC and SOUNDCLOUD's collaboration combines two great digital platforms," said GETTY IMAGES Co-Founder/CEO JONATHAN KLEIN. "This partnership fits directly with GETTY IMAGES strategy of making the broadest and best content available to our customers in a seamless and simple experience while providing a meaningful benefit to the creator."
"SOUNDCLOUD's partnership with GETTY IMAGES MUSIC creates a powerful offering to our community of professional and casual creators," said SOUNDCLOUD Founder/CEO ALEXANDER LJUNG. "Now through GETTY IMAGES MUSIC, songwriters and audio creators can broaden their exposure and potentially monetize sounds they’ve shared on SOUNDCLOUD."
