Anti-piracy tech developer MUSO has raised a $3.2M Series A round led by NJ based VC Harwell Capital. MUSO has a suite of products to help rights-holders protect content, identify piracy and redirect those on pirate sites and “dark channels” to legitimate sources.
MUSO, which has offices in London, Los Angeles, Paris and Milan, claims to have tracked 191 billion global visits to websites in 200 countries hosting unlicensed content in 2016. The technology can track streaming, downloads, public and private torrents and stream rippers.
Chatterley, CEO of MUSO, said: “Harwell Capital is the perfect investor for us. The team has deep experience in backing revenue generating, scalable technology companies in a high-growth stage and so completely understands MUSO’s aims and ambitions. We have an exciting pipeline of business and Harwell’s investment and strategic advice will enable us to more quickly take advantage of the market opportunity.”
