Panel Discussion

A New Era For Indie Labels

With digital platforms and the licensing efforts made by Merlin on behalf of indies, indies' repertoire is now on a level playing field with that of majors in terms of access to market. What are the consequences of this new situation? What are the benefits for indie labels? And what are issues that are still affecting indie labels?
