Session Name: 2016 Copyright & Technology Conference - Collective Licensing: The Future of the ASCAP/BMI Consent Decrees
MeetingType: Chapter Meeting
Date: 01/19/16
Description: The Justice Dept. consent decrees around ASCAP and BMI may have seemed simple enough back in the 1940s. Yet they are widely viewed as inadequate in today’s world of rapidly expanding licensing options for musical compositions, and movement is afoot to change or eliminate them. We’ll deliberate the pros and cons of abolishing, tinkering with, or maintaining the consent decrees from the perspectives of songwriters, PROs, and service providers alike.
