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.

Key questions:

  • How will people consume music five years from now?
  • What are the sustainable business models that can maximize consumer choice and access to music?
  • How will artists engage with their audiences five years from now?
  • What is the role of record labels in light of technologies that make it much easier for recording artists to directly engage with audiences?
  • Should the royalty frameworks for different music delivery mechanisms be technologically agnostic?

All Public Policy for Innovation in the Digital Age panels are free. Registration is required. Seating will be first come, first served. Lunch will be served. Daily parking pass is $12. Pay-by-space parking is also available in Parking Structure SV.
