Rights management remains one of the most crucial, but also most complex topics, for the global music industry. Despite the millions that have been spent on a variety of standards initiatives, the pressure for greater transparency and accountability continues to grow. At the same time, collecting societies are facing new entrants into the marketplace and are therefore having to find new ways to stay as relevant as possible. This panel will aim to tackle:

  • What are the latest initiatives to improve rights management across the international music business?

  • What role, if any, is there for new technologies like blockchain?

  • How are collecting societies responding to the demands of the new, more competitive environment?
