50% Off TRANSCRIPT “Creators’ Rights In The Digital Landscape” Until January 31st:
This think tank considered the pressing issue of creators’ rights and remuneration in the digital landscape. It was informed by the presentation of a paper by Fiona McGugan, which considers the evolution of communication rights that overshadow conventional distribution and reproduction rights as music consumption increasingly shifts away from ownership, towards access models of streaming services. Understanding how these rights are applied, territorial variations in the application of rights, and how licensing structures are determined according to the levels of user-interactivity of digital services lie-at the heart of possibly the single biggest issue facing the music industry in recent times – how much artists get paid.
