Grand Ballroom

Friday, October 13, 2023

Moderator:

Michael Poster, Chair of Music Acquisitions & Financing and Partner, Michelman & Robinson LLP

An increasing number of companies are offering sales of fractional music rights, or micro-slices of rights in a composition or recording. These offerings are designed to provide liquidity to creators while simultaneously allowing fans to participate in real ownership of an artist’s work. However, these offering also come with complex legal challenges under both securities law and copyright law. This panel will discuss these legal issues, and how some of the companies in this space are addressing them.
