“The comedians are the voices influencing and changing the world with satire, humor, laughter and commentary,” says Word Collections founder and CEO Jeff Price. “What they do literally topples regimes and moves societies while, in some cases, putting their lives in danger. Despite this, and their impact, their works are taken and used by companies to drive subscribers, market share and revenue without licenses and without payments. Word Collections will make certain they are properly licensed and paid from the hundreds of billions of past and future global streams and radio broadcasts of their works. It’s the least we can do for them.”
