From The Studio To The Super Bowl - Music In Commercials

From the moment it's first conceived in the studio, there's a long journey before it’s played at a half-time on a Super Bowl TV commercial. We will go through the process of syncing music to commercials. We will cover areas such as rights clearance, documentation, sales reports, usage reporting and the flow of royalty payments.

Artificial Yet Intelligent - A Vision Of The Next 20 Years

Gordon Moore established his own law in 1965 predicting that the number of components per integrated circuit would double every year. He was right. Computers are today a few hundred billion times more powerful than they were in 1965 and Moore’s Law is expected to deliver its promise for many years to come. How this will impact the music industry in the next 20 years is the centre of this discussion.

Live Is Life

Digitalisation has seen the emergence of direct licensing and CMOs rolling out more efficient and transparent member services. Rightsholders are now shining the spotlight on live performance and - with direct deals on the rise, CMOs are once again having to revisit and upgrade their services. This discussion focuses on the "how".

Directives And Indirectives

The new EU Copyright Directive is getting closer to be approved, while its articles 11 and 13 still raise many concerns about their application.

Welcome To The Jungle - Music Copyright’s Cycle
