- 10/19/16 NY - Music Aggregators & Publishers
Music services like iTunes, Amazon, Google Play and Spotify rarely accept content directly from artists and smaller labels. Instead, they rely upon music aggregators like The Orchard, TuneCore and others to provide this music to them. These aggregators have a range of business models and also have added additional services such as music publishing administration and user posted video content support services. How do these companies that offer all-in-one solutions support and benefit songwriters and music publishers? What information should songwriters and music publishers provide to the aggregators and their service partners in order to improve royalty reporting? This panel will provide an update on the music aggregation marketplace.
- 10/13/16 LA - Music 2020
We can't change the world over lunch -- though we can try! Join us for a forward-looking discussion on possible futures of the music industry. We will wrestle with frictions and pressures coming up the pike and ways that musicians, songwriters, producers, entrepreneurs, and companies can thrive working together in an uncertain music world. You will come away with new ideas on how policy and technology may change the way we create, collaborate, share, and live off of current and future music revenue streams — and how we can cooperate to shape a better future for music.
- 9/15/16 LA - Musicology
Whether via a sample, interpolation or an “homage,” the most interesting infringement cases often stem from how similar a musicologist determines one composition and/or sound recording is to another. Our panel will cover a basic overview of musicological analysis and how both in general and specific ways such analysis can determine the path and outcome of possible infringement claims. We will also address how the “substantial similarity” issue can influence a settlement or how a licensing deal is structured (Co-Presented by The Copyright Society of the USA - L.A. Chapter).
- 9/14/16 NY - Blockchain
Blockchain is the public, non-regulated ledger associated with crypto-currency (encrypted digital or virtual currency). The blockchain records all crypto-currency transactions and has complete information about every participant in blocks that are constantly added in a linear, chronological order. What’s that got to do with us? Well, many thinkers now believe that blockchain technology can be incorporated into the music rights business. While some commentators suggest that a decentralized registry could become the “nirvana music API” for real-time rights verification and licensing, others see significant implementation and privacy challenges. For our first panel this fall season, we are pleased to have assembled a group of experts in music-related blockchain technology and law.
- 7/21/16 LA - Trailer Music
Since our last film trailer panel a few years ago, there have been many interesting changes in the world of Trailer Music. The bar is being raised each day for the quality of trailer music and more publishers and libraries are in the mix than ever before. Top names in music are writing for trailers now; “trailerized” cover songs are very popular; sound design, custom music, and overlays are becoming the norm; and the quality in overall production has stepped up tremendously. What does this all mean for the indie publisher? Please join us for an informative update from expert panelists in this very important and potentially lucrative niche.
