The Future of Media

What is the future of media and entertainment? Where and how will we be watching television in five years?  What will television programming look like?. How will we get our music – will we buy it? Rent it? Will it be advertising supported ?  What are the new business models for content delivery?   Where does music publishing fit into those scenarios?

Get the answers to these questions and more with our panel of representatives from cutting edge new media companies who will discuss the issues, risks, variables and options to enable publishers to make informed choices in protecting their copyrights and growing and preserving their income streams.
