What Borders? Music Licensing, Cultural Preservation and Artist Compensation in an Increasingly International Marketplace
The internet may be propelling us towards an international marketplace for music, but copyright law, rights management and royalty structures largely remain governed by laws and practices that differ from country to country. These legal and licensing differences can lead to headaches for those interested in striking global deals but, in some instances, a country’s domestic policies, copyright rules, licensing standards or even its administrative backing of the arts may mean more compensation for its artists and greater support for its unique musical culture. In this breakout session, representatives from a variety of countries and regions will each present ways in which they think musicians are served well by government practices, what happens when government programs fail to live up to their objectives, and ideas from other regions that should be more widely adopted.
