California Copyright Conference Presents “The Music Industry: A Survival Guide for the Future” Oct 12

Film Music Magazine • October 6, 2010

The CCC has arranged a panel to discuss the evolving business landscape of the music industry, as well as strategies for the future. Challenges in the music business are immense, declining record sales and increased competition for placement in film, TV and video games are just two examples. The opportunities, however, are unprecedented. Music is being listened to more than ever before and the explosion of new technologies has created many excellent avenues to monetize music. Everyone involved with the music industry, from lawyers to performers and from managers to music publishers, are invited to join the CCC in a frank discussion of how to survive and even prosper as a music industry professional now and into the future.

* Russell Emanuel, CEO, Extreme Music

ASCAP is good but would like to see them put more emphasis or explain in detail how to apply. I think that they need to be more specific and what is needed or what qualifies and artist, and they took the artist out and plugged in writers. It should be broken into categories better for rappers, singers, writers, poetry, etc. Thanks
