Do You Really Want to Leave Your Ex-US Publishing Revenue on the Table?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Eighty percent of YouTube’s views are from outside of the U.S. For American-based music publishers and songwriters, sub-publishing deals and collective management organizations should ensure that they get the revenue from the overseas use of their repertoire on YouTube. Is it really happening? And what are the tools at their disposal to ensure that works are used and royalties are accurately tracked? This panel will provide an overview of new tracking tools that the audience will be able to test in real time by checking live if a YouTube video generates revenues or not! This panel of experts will review the new options on the table for publishers to control and improve their digital revenue outside the USA. Join in and you'll have the opportunity to check how your videos are performing overseas.
