Music Publishing 2.0: Spotifiying the Social Costs and Legitimising Online Music

Dienstag, September 7, 2010 - 13:30 - 15:00 | R 4 - Kulturbrauerei - SODA SALON

The rocky landscape that maps today’s music related businesses and industries naturally presents copious opportunities for the growth of innovative services. Unfortunately, traditional power structures backed by acquired rights and political influence continue to create impediments resulting in inefficiencies and a plethora of social costs. This Copyright & Licensing presentation and discussion reflects the backbone of a recent thesis produced for the Stockholm University master program in intellectual property law.

Creative Commons Collecting Society - And It's No Typo

Montag, September 6, 2010 - 13:00 - 14:30 | R 7 - Kulturbrauerei - NBI

Currently, GEMA is the only collecting society for music composers in Germany, while GVL is the only society to represent the performing musicians. Members of these two societies cannot license their music themselves, because the societies demand trasfer of all exclusive rights to the complete repertoire of each member. But what about musicians who want to license their music under Creative Commons licenses? First of all, they cannot become members of the societies. And some of them might not even be interested in a commercial exploitation of their works.

Current Status In Collecting Societies And Licensing Alternatives - What's The Vision?

Montag, September 6, 2010 - 14:30 - 16:00 | R 1 - Kulturbrauerei - MASCHINENHAUS

In 2009, during all2gethernow a panel of people fom business, culture, and law talked on this issue. Result was an open one... yet most panelists agreed that changes would have to happen, in particular at Collecting Societies. A high tension causes massive pressure on Collecting Societies to adapt new ideas. There certainly is a risk of missing a step. Now, one year after - what exactly has changed? Did any collection society embrace CreativeCommons? Is there more transparence in GEMA's licensing fees? Is there room for FairUse in Europe? What about the future? What do you expect?


Getting Paid for Creative Commons Licensed Content - Sounds Weird?

Dienstag, September 7, 2010 - 10:00 - 11:30 | R 6 - Kulturbrauerei - KESSELHAUS

This session is not focused on the issue of Creative Commons NC (Non Commercial) licences not being defined exactly enough to allow for exploitation by standards. It's about the issues that artists are fighting when trying to make money from Creative Commons content. Or is it just like, CC vs. Money - that's a paradox? Why not deciding to license under Creative Commons so that you can decide yourself as an artist and composer whom to license to?


Brand Entertainment - Lip Service or Cutting Edge?

Donnerstag, September 9, 2010 - 13:30 - 15:00 | Flughafen Tempelhof - DEUTSCHE KANTINE

Brand Entertainment - Worthülse oder Trend? Music and brand cooperation is widely spread and applies for a wide basis. But what's Brand Entertainment? Just some nice package or serious - and fruitful - business? How do brands and composers benefit? Is it just some new tag for sponsoring, or do we find a whole new concept developed for today's needs? If we find Brand Entertainment to be a successful new form of business... what's the next step in evolution? This session is hosted by TRACKS & FIELDS.
