UK-based piracy tracking startup MUSO secures £3.5 million from Harwell Capital

MUSO, a London-based piracy data startup, has landed £3.5 million in funding from Harwell Capital. The company said that it plans to use the capital injection to “increase its foothold in the digital media, gaming and live broadcast sectors.”

The startup monitors the web to find unlicensed digital content of its customers and issue automated takedown notices to infringing websites. It also provides insights on the audience of the pirate websites and its behaviour.

MUSO claims to have tracked 190 billion visits to piracy websites in 2018. It also lists Sony Interactive, IMG, Entertainment One, Vertical Entertainment, and EUIPO among its clients.
