Music distribution is undergoing a fundamental shift with great societal and policy implications. In the pre-Internet era, consumers accessed music primarily through the radio and purchases of physical media such as records. Today an increasing amount of music is delivered digitally. Consumers now have access to a far wider range of choices. Some artists are benefiting from digital distribution, to reach larger audiences while interacting with those audiences in novel ways. However, other artists are struggling. This event will explore what is happening, what could happen, and what policy innovations are needed to ensure a sustainable and vibrant music industry.
