Managing Content Ownership in the Era of Collaboration

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

In the creative industry, collaboration is key - a single song can be created by multiple songwriters, performers, a producer, and an engineer. With so many cooks in the kitchen, how does the average creator decide who actually owns their content and who can license it? The sheer scale and nature of collaboration today can leave creators feeling overwhelmed with the task of legally protecting the things they've worked so hard to create. Without establishing this from the onset, liability increases, income goes unclaimed, disputes arise, lawsuits ensue, and creators and service providers alike suffer the losses. During this panel, the panelists will share their expert opinions on traditional methods of establishing and managing copyright ownership as well as the modern technologies available for all creators at various stages of their careers.
