International Music Rights: Getting Played and Getting Paid

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Rights management remains a big challenge for the music industry. In an era where music has become a global medium, artists must have a clear understanding about how they are searched for and discovered in international markets and subsequently paid the appropriate royalties. The varying degrees of “rights” held by labels, publishers, societies and service providers and laws by region are enough to make heads spin. How do artists get paid if a song is played in another country? How can artists be discovered globally?  What does music recognition look like in other parts of the world? This panel will help distill global music consumption by market, explore how new music is searched for and discovered by international audiences and discuss how international rights management solutions can help artists get paid.
