A unique social media concept connecting aspiring musicians with their fans, and helping music-lovers discover new music, is being brought to market by Metis Partners, the award-winning commercial intellectual property consulting firm specialists in the sale of intellectual property (IP) assets.

The RifTalk concept envisions a space where bands can share their music with their fans in an interactive environment, with fans able to engage with their favourite up-and-coming musicians.

The IP assets of RifTalk have been prepared for a UK and worldwide marketing campaign by Metis Partners on the instruction of Ryan Davies and Brian Baker of Kingston Smith & Partners, the Joint Liquidators of the company.

Assets linked to the Riftalk sale include the registered RifTalk trade mark, goodwill rights in the RifTalk logo, domain names, user feedback from an initial trial, and organisational knowledge. The sale of RifTalk also includes the rights in the unregistered trade mark for company’s the ‘Rif dollar’ (Rif$) cryptocurrency brand, a similar concept to the successful virtual currency BitCoin. The Rif$ concept can be used for a number of purchases including merchandise, music downloads and access to live streaming of events.

The opportunity is expected to be of considerable interest to those operating in the areas of media and social media, the music industry, online broadcasting, music/video streaming, events organisation, telecommunications, advertising and application and software development.

The sale also reaffirms Metis Partners’ position as a leader in the sale of intellectual property assets and brands, following on from the successful marketing of the intellectual property assets of companies including WeeWorld and Blinkbox.

Nat Baldwin of Metis Partners, who is co-ordinating the marketing process for the RifTalk assets, said: "This is a unique opportunity to purchase the intellectual property assets behind an enterprising company known for its alternative social media concept, and designed to connect unsigned artists from all genres with their fans.”

"RifTalk envisioned that artists and fans could build their own profiles incorporating pictures, videos and biographies, as well as interact with, and follow, a number of different users."

All offers should be submitted directly to Metis Partners by noon on Thursday, August 4, 2016.
