This think tank considers the pressing issue of creators’ rights and remuneration in the digital landscape. It is informed by the presentation of a paper by Fiona McGugan, which considers the evolution of communication rights that overshadow conventional distribution and reproduction rights as music consumption increasingly shifts away from ownership, towards access models of streaming services.

Understanding how this right is applied, territorial variations in the application of rights, and how licensing structures are determined according to the levels of user-interactivity of digital services lie-at the heart of possibly the single biggest issue facing the music industry in recent times – how much artists get paid.

Fiona McGugan’s free paper – An In Depth Analysis of Communication Rights Applied To Licensed Music Streaming Services and the Subsequent Impact on Performers – will be published mid-October. Pre-register your interest here.

Joining Fiona McGugan FAC & MMF, will be Horace Trubridge, Assistant General Secretary, MU; Benoît Machuel, General Secretary, FIM; and Alexander Ross, Partner, Wiggin LLP, with others tbc. This session will be chaired by MusicTank chair, Keith Harris, OBE.
