Panels Featuring SoundExchange:
Money Changes Everything: Accountability and Transparency in Music Transaction Processing
Date: Jan 24, 2017
Time: 2:30-3:30 PM
Location: New York University Kimmel Center
Featuring: Colin Rushing, SVP & General Counsel
Panel Description: The settlement of songwriters’ recent lawsuit against Spotify resulted in the music streaming giant creating mechanisms for publishers and songwriters to submit data on rights ownership. Meanwhile, a new standards effort, the Open Music Initiative, proposes industry-wide mechanisms to ensure accountability and transparency in music royalty transaction processing. Our panelists will speculate about whether these technical capabilities will lead to new sets of expectations for administration of royalties in the future.
