The Music Industry: A Foreign Country Perspective

The foreign country marketplace represents billions of dollars in publisher and songwriter royalties. The “rules of the game’ though outside the U.S. are very different in many ways from the practices, laws and policies that govern our domestic dealings. Many issues and policies surfacing abroad can have a significant effect on U.S. publisher, songwriter and composer revenue let alone the way we do business. This panel of foreign country experts will discuss some of these important issues as well as their effects on the global marketplace. Areas covered include the EU Directive (Article 17), Pan European licensing, the effect Covid has had on collection societies, the fair and appropriate manner of distributing streaming royalties, the handling of translations and the role of sub publishers, among other items.
