Music Industry Leaders Discuss Digital Music Licensing

United States
Boston, MA, May 5, 2008. A panel of music industry heavy hitters converged on Berklee College of Music recently to kick-off the college’s Envisioning 21st Century Music Business Models, an ongoing series of discussions about the music industry. U.S. Register of Copyrights Marybeth Peters gave a keynote address outlining the background of copyright law, which led into the discussion by prominent record industry executives, artists, journalists, and managers that focused on one of the key components of the service-based music business model: digital music licensing. The Envisioning 21st Century Music Business Models series was created by Berklee’s Music Business/Management Department to provide a forum for industry professionals, academics, and college students to discuss and develop innovative ideas for redesigning the music industry in the new millennium.
