BMI was a proud sponsor of the Digital Music Forum West, which took place October 2 & 3 at The Hollywood Roosevelt. BMI participated in the Digital Rights and Clearance panel, moderated by David Oxenford, a partner at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP. BMI Vice President, New Media & Strategic Development, Richard Conlon was one of six panelists on hand to discuss the clearance rights issues for digital music licenses.
Topics included avoiding complicated processes to obtain clearances; rates; and identifying the differences between performing right organizations, national music publisher associations and music publishers.
