Music Business Now: How Music Makes Money

Music Business Now: How Music Makes Money

Theresa Lang Community and Student Center, Arnhold Hall
General Public 

The Parsons Institute for Intellectual Property (PIIP), in conjunction with the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, announces an evening panel presentation of industry professionals discussing how music makes money now.

Since the advent of digitized music, the methods of making, using and delivering music have grown exponentially. As a result, many royalty revenue streams and creative ways of monetizing music have emerged. The ways in which music is now marketed, bundled, downloaded, streamed, and otherwise used have resulted in many opportunities and challenges, and have kept legislation and business practices moving at an accelerated pace to keep up. 

Payments have changed considerably since the heyday of record royalties, making it more important than ever to understand how the new licensing, financing and payment models affect the income of music creators.
