Music 4.5

The next edition of the Music 4.5 series takes place in London next week putting the spotlight on copyright developments in both Europe and the USA.

This will include a focus on the US Music Modernization Act which seeks to reform how mechanical royalties are paid by streaming services Stateside, as well as sorting out issues around the payment of royalties on pre-1972 sound recordings and the sharing of online radio income with record producers.

The afternoon will also consider what impact the MMA will have on the European music industry, how copyright regimes in the US and Europe will compare once current reforms on both sides of the Atlantic go through, and what all these changes mean for artists, songwriters and their business partners.

As always, the event will include presentations and discussion, with those presenting including Hanna Grzeszczyk (Media IP Rights), Rell Lafargue (Reservoir Media Management), Gee Davy (AIM), Lauri Rechardt (IFPI), Ben McEwen (ICE) and Jamie Ross (7digital). It all takes place on Thursday 28 Jun at the London HQ of Lewis Silkin – info and tickets here.

To get you in the mood, catch up on the latest developments with the European Copyright Directive here, while premium subscribers can read up on the top five US copyright quirks and how the MMA addresses some of them here.
