Panel Discussion

Copyright Summit at Canadian Music Week

2017 is going to be an active year on the copyright front, with key legislation in the works in Europe, the USA and Canada, among other places. Rights holders are pushing for an agenda that provides fair remuneration and respects the rights of creators. What are the key issues at stake? How likely is it that pro-creators legislation will be passed? Is there a convergence in the way different parts of the world approach similar issues? A group of experts from creators' organizations, record labels, music publishing and rights societies will share their views on how to move the copyright agenda forward.
