- Attendees to receive three CLE credits

April 21, 2014 – The Music Business Association (Music Biz), formerly NARM and digitalmusic.org, will bring its Entertainment and Technology Law Conference back to Los Angeles on May 8 during the Music Biz 2014 conference at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles. Attendees will receive three CLE credits for participating.

The event will have a special focus on digital music models, with panels zeroing in on licensing and royalty payments as well as the intersection of technology and traditional views on copyright. Government representatives such as Jacqueline Charlesworth, General Counsel and Associate Register of Copyrights at the U.S. Copyright Office; company representatives such as Chris Harrison, Assistant General Counsel at Pandora; artist managers such as Jeff Jampol, President of Jampol Artist Management Inc. (JAM); and top attorneys such as Steve Winogradsky, who has spent over 30 years as a music attorney and served as President of The Association of Independent Music Publishers, will be on hand to lead the debate on these issues.

“As streaming services continue to grow and technology breeds constant evolution in the music industry, it is important that all parties clearly understand the mechanics of how artists and other stakeholders are paid in today’s world,” said James Donio, President of Music Biz. “The Entertainment and Technology Law Conference provides a forum for discussing these issues with peers, high-powered attorneys, government officials, and anyone else with an interest in copyright. And since digital licensing and royalties is such a key issue in today’s industry, we think this is a fitting way to bring Music Biz 2014 to an end.”

Admission to the Entertainment and Technology Law Conference is included in the registration price for the full Music Biz 2014 event. In addition to company pricing, tickets can be purchased at special rates for individuals and students. Registration for the Entertainment and Technology Law Conference only can also be purchased on EventBrite at a cost of $100 for members and $150 for non-members.

The currently confirmed agenda for the Entertainment and Technology Law Conference is below.

3:30 – 3:40 PM
Welcome & Introduction of Music Biz’s Legal Sector

3:40 – 4:50 PM
Licensing & Royalty Payments from an Artist’s Perspective
There is much discussion in the news about how artists and songwriters are getting paid unfair royalty rates from digital services. Per a recent tweet from Bette Midler, “@Spotify and @Pandora have made it impossible for songwriters to earn a living: three months streaming on Pandora, 4,175,149 plays = $114.11.” This panel will explore the current status of music rights licensing and royalty payments from the perspective of the content owners — the artist, songwriter, record label, and music publisher — and explore how payments from each of the digital music service types — streaming services, webcasting services, cloud, etc. — get disbursed to each of the participants. Our speakers will discuss the calculation of streaming royalties, mechanical royalties, and public performance royalties; blanket synchronization fees; and other current business practices.
• Moderator: Cindy Charles, Music Business Association
• Jonathan Blaufarb, Counsel LLP
• Darryl Franklin, Disney Music Group
• Jeff Jampol, JAM, Inc.
• Steve Winogradsky, Winogradsky/Sobel

4:50 – 6 PM
Disruption as a Business Model: Can the Music Industry Survive as a Totally Free Unregulated Market?
In the post-digital, post-iTunes era where streaming is king, Google monetizes YouTube, government regulates royalties, and courts determine the rights of music publishers and PROs, is disruption the new music business model? This panel presentation will explore the “20,000 foot” view of the music industry today, with business and technology innovation on the one hand and traditional copyright principles, including the traditional government regulation of the music industry, on the other. Questions discussed will include “How does the music industry actually work in today’s market?” and “Why are revenues the way they are, should copyright law be reformed, and if so, how?”
• Moderator: Corey Field, Ballard Spahr LLP
• Larry Blake, Concord Music Group
• Jacqueline Charlesworth, U.S. Copyright Office
• Chris Harrison, Pandora
• Les Watkins, Music Reports Inc.

Music Biz 2014, which will be held May 6-8, is the music industry’s premier event, giving the commerce and content sectors a place to meet with trading partners, network with new companies, and learn about new trends and products impacting the music business.
