Music Catalog Sales and the Changing Landscape in Music Publishing

When: February 8, 2022 at 2:00pm - 3:00pm EST - This event has passed

The news has been full of stories about music publishers buying up catalogs of major legacy artists for hundreds of millions of dollars. A new breed of music rights management companies, from BMG to Primary Wave to Hipgnosis, has arisen in recent years alongside the Big Three music publishers to take advantage of the interest in music composition rights. What are the opportunities these new rightsholders are seeing, how do they affect the everyday lives of music licensing practitioners, and what is the likely effect of all this activity on the future structure of royalties and the industry? Our panel will discuss.
