Kendra Hub is an open source dashboard application for rights owners, music makers, managers and record labels, enabling users to manage and track their digital media assets, collaborations and associated rights. The project is funded by the UK government and by industry. The application will integrate with social networks, copyright management organisations and online distribution points.
