Global Music Landscape: Getting Discovered, Played and Paid
Music Discovery and Rights management remain both a challenge and opportunity for the music industry. In an era where music has become a global medium, Rights holders are no longer focused on their ‘own backyards.’ As such, artists and rightsholders must have a clear understanding about how search and discovery impacts them in international markets and subsequently how and if they get paid international royalties. The different types of “rights” held by labels, publishers, societies and service providers, and the laws in each territory are enough to make your head spin. How do artists get paid if a song is played in another country? How can artists be discovered globally? What does music recognition look like in other parts of the world? This panel will help distill global music consumption by market, explore how new music is searched and discovered by international audiences, and discuss how international rights management solutions can help artists get paid.
