  • The future is here NOW and increasingly performances of our music emanate from the internet. How will this affect our performing rights? We will discuss potential threats to our performing rights income that are occurring right now and how we can deal with them.

    In addition our panel will address the issues and factors that affect proper receipt of the money your music earns. Our panel will take an in depth look at the anatomy of cue sheets, the need for copyright, and the changing structure of revenue streams. From the filing of cue sheets through the monitoring of your statements, we'll arm you with the information you need to protect your earnings.
