Neighboring rights are as important as they are complex. Their value as an alternative revenue stream for artists and labels has grown, particularly in 2020 and 2021 as the pandemic robbed creators of live performance opportunities. Join leading legal minds and subject matter experts including SoundExchange’s Senior Director of International, Ryan Lehning, to get insights into the legal dynamics of neighboring rights, the market size, how it translates to business opportunities, and an overview of developments that could affect your income. The panel will close with Q&A and thoughts for the future of international treatment.
