Panel Agenda

Friday, October 18, 2024, 8am-5pm

Mondo’s 8th annual CLE program hosts top music lawyers and thought leaders for an all-day entertainment law seminar addressing some of the biggest legal and regulatory developments affecting the music industry, including recent court decisions and key policy matters focusing on AI, trust & security, IP valuations, live, streaming, ethics and more.

All Mondo attendees are invited to attend CLE panels on Friday, October 18. For CLE credit, a Continuing Legal Education single-day or Mondo combo registration is required.

8am: Breakfast


9am: Managing in the Face of Crisis: Ethical and Practical Considerations for Attorneys and Business Leaders: This panel examines the ethical, legal, and business considerations faced by lawyers and business leaders in a crisis management environment. Topics covered include engaging and working with crisis management professionals and private investigators, and the ethical rules that apply; trial publicity and Model Rule of Professional Conduct 3.6; risk management versus risk elimination; and balancing competing considerations when responding to a public relations crisis.

10am: Creators Beware: Legal & Business Issues Affecting Emerging Artists: It has never been simple for aspiring artists to access and survive the commercial marketplace. We'll analyze the hot spots and danger zones of today's ever more complex rights, distribution, data and revenue ecosystems.

11am: A Whole New World: Developments in Music and Public Policy Around the World: Legislators and regulators all over the world are shaping the future of the global music industry, from generative AI and deepfakes, to platform regulations, to living wages for musicians. This panel will take you wonder by wonder through the most important developments in the United States and abroad.

12pm: Lunch


1pm: Catalog Shopping 2024: The market for music catalogs continues to thrive, with continuing sales directly from creators as well as a very active trade in secondary sales (portfolios of acquired catalogs).  This panel will discuss trends and developments in the catalog market, including deal structures, pricing trends, secondary sales and financing.

2pm: “Toe 2 Toe”: The 2023-2024 Music Litigation “Paper Chase”: Even in the shadow of dozens of high-profile AI copyright lawsuits, music litigators have had a busy year. To be sure, one of the many new music copyright cases was brought by music publishers against AI company Anthropic. But many other cases have been winding their way through the federal courts, including fights over hip-hop lyrics; sampling and soundalikes; copyright grant termination; infringements on social media; and a potentially watershed case involving the embattled statute of limitations “discovery rule”. This panel will review the greatest hits of music copyright litigation over the last 12-18 months and provide updates on areas of the law that are critical to labels, publishers, and artists alike.

3pm: Dealmaking in the Generative AI Space: The two most used letters in the music business alphabet these days are AI. We take a deep dive into the current market on genAI deal work, including procuring and providing AI tools, and content licensing to generative AI tool developers. We'll discuss various risks and key deal points, including liabilities and indemnities, service standards, economic structures, license scope, managing NIL rights, data security, vendor diligence, and much more.

4pm: Streaming State of Affairs: Opportunity, Security & Fraud: We'll take a close look at the opportunities and challenges of the current streaming environment, specifically policy, compensation models, interoperable playlists, TikTok, AI flooding and more. This panel also examines streaming fraud, content/cyber security, tech systems/protections and guidance for IP owners.
