Fair Trade Music: Toward a Legitimate Digital Music Marketplace
Thanks to the internet, there are now a mind-boggling array of legal tools and services that help musicians promote, distribute and sell their music while offering fans unprecedented avenues of discovery and interaction. Tech entrepreneurs have devised many brilliant and beloved applications for the legal distribution or streaming of music, but new models often struggle to succeed working within the constraints of existing copyright law, licensing fees and telecommunications policies. Using the Policy Day’s discussion as a starting point, leading entrepreneurs and artist representatives will discuss how technology is changing the music marketplace, and what changes in broadband, broadcast or IP policy are the most important to address to ensure creators are compensated and innovation can flourish. What laws are hindering the development of these new business models? Do any laws need to change to encourage new innovative models?
