In addition to the many churches adding their content to Truli.net, many movie studios, record labels, producers and other popular artists have selected Truli.net as their partner to reach the world with their programming on a shared revenue basis. Truli does not pay these artists for their content to be available on their site but provides a percentage of the revenue generated as compensation. This system eliminates any downside to the company for content acquisition costs while making the artist or studio a partner with the profits generated said Michael Solomon, Chairman, CEO.
