BMI’s Senior Director Film, TV & Visual Media, Anne Cecere, joined Tim Cohan, Senior Vice President, Legal and Business Affairs for Peermusic, and Corey Field, a member of the USC Gould School of Law faculty and founder of his own boutique entertainment firm, in a panel at Harvard Law School entitled “Music Publishing and the Law: Getting Paid in the Digital Age.” The standing room only crowd consisted of law students and professors, as well as songwriters, composers, publishers and musicians from all over the Boston and Cambridge area, including students from Berklee College of Music. Hosted by Harvard Law School’s Recording Artists Project (RAP), the timely and highly relevant discussion focused on music publishing’s regulatory landscape, new challenges and models created by streaming, and the re-emergence of performance as a dominant income stream for artists.
