Collecting Societies

Session 3.1
Open business models in the field of music have a strong link to collecting societies. The field is broader than the discussion about collecting societies although, at the moment collecting societies are one of the important players.

This session is a panel discussion around the issues at the intersection between the open music business and collecting societies. There have been some significant changes recently in the collecting societies regime and these will be grappled with in this session.

At least half of the time in the session will be dedicated to open discussion.

The following questions will be addressed:

   * What is the role of collecting societies in these business models
   * What is the role of the new platforms (jamendo, myspace, magnatune etc.)
   * Are they in a position to replace collecting societies (in the long run)?
   * What is the role for cc in all of this? (more than a provider of standard licenses?)
   * Does cc+ make sense for musicians?
   * How does it interface with collective rights management?
