Panel – 4. September

Transparency and Fairness in the digital music value chain

14:15 - 14:50
Fritz Lounge

When it comes to the words “fair” and “transparent” there is always an ample scope for interpretation. Still, the players of the digital music value chain haven’t found a consensus what “fair” and “transparent” means when it comes to the artists’ remuneration. The panel will discuss how to put both constructs in more concrete terms and how creator's needs can be met while understanding those of the other players. DOMUS, the German umbrella association for music creatives, will issue suggestions for a more effective implementation of the German Copyright Act, “Urheberrechtskorb 2”. We can expect an interesting and controversial discussion.
