The British government’s Technology Strategy Board (TSB) has awarded a grant of £250k to anti-piracy firm Muso, to help get one of its new tools up and running. Musco is planning to test the tech with some of its clients in 2014, and applied for the “Smart Award” development grant to help. “Securing this development grant from the TSB is fantastic independent endorsement of the strength of our technology and future developments we are making in the anti-piracy solutions market,” said co-founder Christopher Elkins. “The grant award gives our R&D team an extremely robust financial position from which to develop this ambitious and forward-thinking product, to the benefit of the UK tech sector, and rights holders looking for new ways to further drive the online growth of great content.” Muso has been increasingly active in recent months, with clients including PIAS, Beggars Group and Demon Music Group, and a recent deal with controversial Russian social network vKontakte to help it remove infringing content.
