Keynote: The Royalty Conundrum - Digital Payments With A Vinyl System

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

All around the world, the current digital music royalty payment system is in chaos. The race is on to bring order to the confusion. Those who made the music must be paid fairly and fast. Music rights owners, administrators, and licensors all want to see royalties get to those who earned them. The heart of the music/tech discussion has suddenly evolved from “How much should the artists be paid?” to “How effective are the pipes through which the money and data flow?” The system, after all, was built for another era. Today, we are witnessing a profound change in the copyright world. Transparency without accountability is meaningless. This keynote will focus on how to fix the system on a global scale, examining royalty flow, the role of metadata, and the need for modernization.
