Session summary: Getting everyone up to speed on the implications, capabilities and parameters of the cc+ protocol - the prime legal mover in terms of this track. (Eric Steuer) >1 hour
Outcome: We are all on the same page with regard to cc+.
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?

International and regional institutions such as WIPO or the European Commission increasingly constitute the fora where the decision making for the future direction of IPR policies takes place. Whereas global, commons-oriented organizations, such as Creative Commons, are acknowledged as important stakeholders in the process of global IPR policy formation, they have often been absent from the consultation process. In this session we propose to discuss if and how Creative Commons and its international projects in now over 45 countries of the world should strive towards setting up an internal process of co-ordination and consultation on important IPR-related policy proposals being debated in national and international forums. Furthermore, should this internal process be set up, what structure needs to be created in order for it to effectively advocate its positions at international forums.
