Program Description: Licensing music for film and television has long been a complicated and fragmented process, often requiring multiple copyright licenses from record labels, music publishers, and performing rights organizations. Advancements in digital device and distribution technologies have engendered additional complexity, simultaneously creating new opportunities and challenges — not only for creators and copyright owners, but also for those who counsel them. This panel will examine emerging digital business models and related issues — from the creative, business and legal perspectives.
