SoundExchange Panel Information: 

Legislative Fix for Copyright Woes:  Reality or Pipe Dream

  • Featuring: Julia Massimino, VP of Global Public Policy
  • Date: FridayOctober 24, 2014
  • Time: 1:30 – 2:30 PM
  • Location: New York University 60 Washington Square South, New York City
  • Panel Description: Recently, we have seen a flurry of activity regarding potential legislative copyright reform. The Copyright Office solicited comments, commissioned roundtables and published reports on a variety of important copyright topics, including a “making available” right, orphan works, mass digitization and generally, the “music licensing marketplace.” Meanwhile, Congress has held equally varied hearings addressing similar issues relating to copyright reform. Music-focused legislation has also been introduced by Congress, including The Songwriter Equity Act, which seeks to reform rate-setting standards and rules for both public performance and reproduction rights. Courts and legislatures in New York, California and Tennessee continue to grapple with the proper treatment of pre-1972 sound recordings. Our distinguished panel of practitioners will guide you through this labyrinthine series of developments while also providing a global perspective.
