Titled, “Understanding Music Industry’s Black Box Royalties”, the presentation highlighted key insights into the research we are conducting into black box royalties.

The research is composed of:

Key insights highlighted where:

missing, music, incorrect, data, poor, rights, lack, information, metadata

The challenges faced vary across the industry, which lead to variation in how this impacts industry stakeholders.

A huge thanks to Paul Sweeting and the Concurrent Media and NYME team for a great event. A lot of great minds bouncing ideas off each other and now that technology is catching up to the thinking, there is a real desire to solve these underlying issues.
