As gaming platforms, the metaverse, new social networks, and other innovative technologies gain prevalence, it is essential that these companies license all required music rights on a global scale and that rightsholders are able to collect the resulting payments. This panel will take a deep dive into the current global licensing landscape, exploring the challenges that technology companies face when launching new platforms and apps, best practices in licensing, opportunities for improvement in the market, direct licensing vs. CMOs, and issues with cross-border royalty collections.
