Machine-to-machine communication is the ideal scenario if we want to enable on a global scale, with as little friction as possible and at a reasonable cost, the licensing of works and the payment of royalties to rightsholders.  That at least is the stated premise for a recent discussion at the annual RightsTech Summit conference.

But how far have we come?  How close are we to achieving a digitized business environment for rights and royalties that is as fully realized as we see today in media distribution and consumption? Until code entirely does away with contracts will human beings will continue to add a value that no machine ever can?

“I think all of this starts with a human being. No matter what technology we apply to these systems, if a person doesn’t know how to interact or create the data that they need to disseminate, it’s just not going to get there,” said Michael Shanley of Music Reports. Technology evolves all the time, and I think we’re getting to great places in technology.  But education and information is, I think, paramount.”

Panelists for the session moderated by CCC’s Chris Kenneally included Dae Bogan co-founder & CEO of TuneRegistry, a music and rights metadata management platform; Benji Rogers, a British-born, New York-based entrepreneur, who co-founded the Dot Blockchain Music Project, an attempt to create a de-centralized global registry of music rights using blockchain technology; Michael S. Simon, President of Rumblefish, a world leader in music micro-licensing and YouTube monetization and also CEO of the Harry Fox Agency LLC, the nation’s leading provider of rights management, licensing and royalty services for the music industry; and Michael Shanley, Vice President of IT Business Development at Music Reports, developers of proprietary databases and software applications that facilitate music rights administration.

For years I’ve been asked to live stream my classes and workshops. I’ve finally decided to do something even better: I’ve decided to develop an online music business academy.

Over the next few months, I will be developing and publishing music business education online courses under the brand Marcato Academy. In music theory, “marcato” is the Italian word for emphasis and here I use it to mean an emphasis on quality music business education.

To kick-off to this journey, I’ve decided to put together a series of FREE masterclasses in cities that I will be visiting over the next several weeks to speak at music industry conferences or catch up with family and friends.

The “Music Industry Entrepreneurship Masterclass Tour” will feature four spot dates of 2 hour classes held in Brooklyn, Oakland, Cleveland, and Los Angeles.

  • Rights Administration & Licensing – What rights do you own and/or control? How are rights licensed and monetized? What are some rights administration best practices? When and how to join music rights organizations?
  • Business Formation – What business formation options are available to you? What are the pro’s and con’s between different entity structures? What are some tax implications that should be considered?
  • Go-To-Market Strategy – How to conduct market research in the music industry? How to develop a go-to-market strategy? How to market on a budget?
  • Team Building – When and how to build your team? How to seek, vet, and hire freelancers? How to leverage interns in a mutually beneficial manner? Best practices for remote organization management.
  • Networking & Personal Branding –  How to establish a personal brand as a music industry professional? How to find networking opportunities? Online networking best practices?

Match Game: The Problem of Matching Music Recordings to Compositions

The dramatic growth of streaming has exposed an Achilles’ Heel in the music industry: matching sound recordings to their underlying musical compositions.  Music services face challenges in determining which songwriters and music publishers they should pay royalties for the tracks they stream for their users. Accurate linking of sound recordings to compositions has proven problematic: it has led to controversies and lawsuits as well as opportunities for technological solutions. We’ll discover the state of the art in technology as well as industry-level attempts to solve this growing problem.

SoCal Music Industry Professionals August Meetup With Chips & Salsa Sponsored By Royalty Claim

I am excited to announce the next SoCal Music Industry Professionals (Meetup | Facebook) meetup taking place at my absolute favorite taco joint (which happens to be a beautiful venue for live music on La Brea in Mid-Wilshire District) — Candela La Brea!

I’ve know the owners for almost a decade, having hosted events/parties in this space as a college student/club promoter. The family has completely revamped the space, so I am thrilled to host my music industry colleagues here to network and check it out the space (Red Bull just hosted a sick music event here last night). My buddy Omar, the GM, was kind enough to grant us the full upstairs lounge with a private bar (great margaritas) and a complimentary chips & salsa bar sponsored by Royalty Claim (you can also order food from the full menu…the tacos are AMAZING!).

I hope to see you all Thursday, August 31st at 6pm! Please RSVP (plus 1s and 2s are OK) on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/386559748425153 or on SCMIP Meetup website http://www.meetup.com/scmiponline
