Are the UK and Europe moving towards a US model? Are we seeing a dismantling of territorial licensing by collecting society monopolies? What role and potential influence do the record labels hold? What role and potential influence do the publishers? Do the publishers support collective licensing? What impact does this have for services wishing to license? If a dismantling is taking place, what would the consequences be in a world without the songwriters' cheque + the dole that has often been seen as the key reason for the UK's prolific music scene. What is done to proactively stimulate new digital business - are licensors supporting and stimulating digital business? If so, how? What commercial analysis and what digital revenue and growth trends underpin the policies? In view of the draft directive on Collective Licensing, where would we like to go, what is needed by the industry, including new startups, established businesses, labels, publishers, technology companies and artists? Join us for this investigative debate.
