"The Future of Music Licensing"

“The Future of Music Licensing”

The 4th Vienna Music Business Research Days – taking place at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna from June 20-21, 2013 – are discussing the “Future of Music Licensing” from several perspectives. In the course of the digital paradigm shift in the music industry the trade of copyright and related rights has gained high relevance for commercializing and distributing music. The ongoing process of digitization does not only challenge the value-added network of music publishers, labels and collecting societies, but put also existing copyright regimes in question. Thus, international experts will present and discuss current findings on the role of traditonal players in licensing music rights, and reflect new forms of digital music licensing such as creative commons licenses.
