Publishing Data: How Creators Can Control Their Digital Destiny, Today and Tomorrow

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

Publishing data is broken. Countless worldwide data sources contain overlapping and incongruent information. There is no broad legal requirement to remove deprecated ownership info. There is currently no global master repository for publishing info.

Publishing data becomes deeply conflicted through the regular course of business, even when all parties are acting in good faith. The companies that merge catalog publishing data work at break-neck speeds. Where does that leave creators like you, trying to get paid fairly and accurately for your work? In the first half of this panel, we present how publishing data is used today and a collection of ways you can ensure your publishing data is pristine, working hard, and getting you paid by trusted third parties.

Looking forward to the future, many on the forefront of music data are working to build common infrastructure so that these problems can be diminished, and new revenue opportunities for creators can be unlocked. High-performance technologies like blockchain and a new generation of intelligent APIs are disrupting the century-old publishing data landscape. In the second half of this panel, we introduce you to the companies and ideas on the front lines of the digital publishing future.
