The Future of the Music Industry is Digital Performance Rights and Revenues

Entertainment & Sports Law Society Symposium - Miami, FL 

The online/digital world of songs and sound recordings has significantly changed the definition and scope of rights as well as the negotiation of the value of those rights. This panel will discuss the many factors affecting the performing rights areas in music publishing and sound recordings including the Department of Justice ruling on ASCAP and BMI fractional vs. 100% licensing, the conflicting ASCAP and BMI Consent Decree rate court decisions, the role of arbitration and mediation in determining rates, compulsory non-interactive licensing by SoundExchange vs. voluntary licenses, the present legal status of pre-1972 sound recordings, and an overview of the future of direct ("voluntary”) licensing by music publishers and sound recording  owners.
