Copyright Terminations and Legacy Catalogues: What Publishers are Missing

Copyright terminations and catalogue acquisitions are two of the hottest topics in the music industry right now.  While the media focuses on multi-million dollar mega-deals, there is an entire category of catalogues that get overlooked – not only by the press, but also by many publishers.  Join this informative panel in their discussion on those often ignored catalogues, alternative strategies to handling terminations, what publishers are missing and how they can maximize success with these catalogues.
