Summus is a Latin word that describes the greatness of things. In our case, SUMMUS is a summit to celebrate the greatness of music. A place where experts from all around the music industry meet to share lessons learnt, build consensus about today's challenges, and design forthcoming landscapes.

SUMMUS is an ideal forum to debate and learn in details about proposals and necessities for identification and distribution of rights using avant-garde tools.

Front of the Cue

The journey of a cue sheet from creation to monetisation still carries a touch of mystery. We often find ourselves asking questions such as who generates and reviews them, or who owns and has access to them. We want to discuss the best path for cue sheets to follow.

The Rain in Spain Falls Mainly on the Plain

After a bumpy start to the year, there’s the potential that Spain will see movements within their royalty distribution system. The recent rainfall may have watered the seeds for Spain to blossom, but what lies ahead is still unclear for now.

Run for Back Office

Back Office systems must adapt to the ever-changing needs of the industry. Users want faster, more transparent and insightful systems. Higher processing power, quality and efficiency are now within reach thanks to the new advances in technology—many of which are being explored.

Podcast Forecast

Podcasts have attracted a lot of attention on most online music services available. While the podcast offering continues to grow considerably, a number of questions about their usage of music remain open—largely about clearance and retribution.

Down to a Fine Chart

It feels as though there’s a growing interest in standardised music charts which serve as a common ground for the whole music industry. After the physical sales decline, new and multiple successful forms of online exploitation appeared. This calls for a revision of the rules and the refoundation of the best practices.

Panellists

For Digital Intents and Purposes

Digital music services often face copyright challenges which still require manual intervention. The digital paradigm – 0 or 1 – doesn’t always apply, and techniques capable of handling this uncertainty are required. We’ll discuss amongst all parties how far automatisation can go and the ideal solution for matters such as claim validation and conflict resolution.
