CLE: Re-Examining the Artist’s Bargaining Power in Entertainment Agreements
Hector Baldonado, Principal Attorney, The Baldonado Group, P.C.
Throughout the digital/streaming era of music the institutional stakeholders of the industry have consistently increased what they “ask” of performing artists when bargaining over key agreements. This discussion will seek to illuminate the factors animating this trend; to compare the bargaining power of artists in this generation to that of artists from previous generations; to analyze specific rights that were previously considered inviolable but are now customarily conceded by artists in exchange for greater “artist support”; and, to evaluate whether this shift works to the benefit or detriment of individual artists and the industry at large. (Mondo attendees are welcome to attend all CLE panels.)
