Digital Music Forum East: New York
BMI is proud to be a co-sponsor of the 12th Annual Digital Music Forum, taking place February 22-23, 2012 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage (36 Battery Place, NYC). This will bring together the top music, technology and policy leaders for high-level discussions and debate, intimate meetings and unrivaled networking about the future of digital music.
On February 23rd, BMI’s Executive Director, Business Development New Media, Michael Drexler, will be a panelist on the panel, “Rights & Licensing: If I wanted to reform music copyright law, I would…”
(9:30–10:15am). A common complaint of entrepreneurs attempting to license music for digital music-based services is that the current laws governing music licensing are too complex and unfavorable to digital music start-ups. In this panel, we will hear from experts in the field as they discuss what’s working and what’s not under the current licensing laws? What the arguments for and against reform? In an ideal, what changes should be made or not?
