Finances

The MetaBrainz Foundation practices a policy of transparent finances where the finances of the non-profit are freely available on this web site. This financial philosophy allows the monetary contributors to MetaBrainz and information contributors to MusicBrainz to see how the non-profit spends the donations and license fees it collects. Since MusicBrainz was built with volunteer effort and MetaBrainz is supported in part by volunteer donations, we believe that our contributors have the right to see how the non-profit manages its finances.

The non-profit publishes all aspects of its finances, as far as that is possible. In some cases, third parties making payments to the non-profit require us to not disclose the sums paid to us for various activities. For instance, one affiliate of MetaBrainz prevents us from publishing the details of earnings from an affiliate program. In these cases we will anonymize these payments before publishing on this site.
