As a Technical Director with 15 years programming experience it was originally established as a self-funded project to combat the detrimental effect he witnessed piracy was having on the work of his musician friends. However it rapidly gained momentum as a cost-effective anti-piracy tool, quickly finding favour with 100’s of industry leaders like Armada, Cr2, Defected, Hospital, Ministry of Sound, OWSLA, RAM, Revealed, Spinnin’ and Toolroom. Over 30% of the DJ Mag Top 100 are now protected using AudioLock including Hardwell, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Martin Garrix, Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, Skrillex and Calvin Harris. The service now consistently delivers as top reporter on Google’s Transparency Report and is trusted by hundreds of music rights holders, at every level and genre, across 5 continents and in over 30 countries. Ben’s significant knowledge of anti-piracy from both the rights’ holder and technology perspective has made him a much in-demand speaker. He regularly talks at events like the UK Trade and Industry Conference, The Brighton Music Conference, IFPI AGM, BPM, Data Summit UK and AudioLock’s own event for AIM members the Music Piracy Prevention Forum.
