    Panel Description: 2016 marks the start of an era in streaming music legalities, with new webcast royalty rates for use of recordings through 2020. With this crucial cost item settled, webcasters of all sizes have different outlooks, and the landscape of webcasting is changing. But licensing music recordings is only part of the puzzle. Royalties for songwriters and publishers are another aspect in the matrix of legally streamed music. Broadcast law attorney David Oxenford has led the RAIN legal panel for years, demystifying a complex subject with lively aplomb. Join David and a selection of experts from several industry touch-points for a clarifying discussion of the industry’s legal underpinning.
