AIMP/Belmont Pipeline Project Survey

Posted July 16, 2015

by L. Redwing

From Nashville Chapter Executive Director Marc Driskill/Sea Gayle Music:

As most of you are aware, last summer, the AIMP Nashville Chapter engaged a group of students at Belmont University here in Nashville in a research project related to the Copyright Office’s music licensing review and subsequent report “Copyright and the Music Marketplace”.  During this project, they interviewed stakeholders from different areas of our industry and created a report which was submitted to the Copyright Office and actually cited several (approximately 12) times in the “Copyright and the Music Marketplace” report.  They also made presentations to Rep. Doug Collins and Rep. Marsha Blackburn.  The interviewees included Vincent Candilora from ASCAP, Jay Rosenthal formerly from NMPA, Steve Marks from RIAA, Collin Rushing from SoundExchange, Jody Williams from BMI, Brittany Shaffer from Loeb & Loeb, Scott Sellwood from Google/YouTube and Steve Bogard from the Copyright Forum, just to name a few.

I say all that to give you some background on the credibility of the program.  We are engaging them again this summer and in our initial meeting with the advisors a few weeks ago, we proposed they help us by aggregating the needs of independent publishers through interviews and surveys, and compiling suggestions as to how these needs might be implemented into new systems that will be built to accommodate the changing landscape.  And this project could be a great way to aggregate our ideas and needs and have them presented to our current partners or anyone who may be a potential partner for us in the future. 

I would like to ask you to complete the attached survey the Pipeline Project has created.  Feel free to share the link with others you feel may have something to add to the discussion.  The survey will be live for 2 weeks at which time they will compile the data for presentations before the end of the engagement on August 3rd.        

Thanks so much for your time and input.
