  • A big “Thank You” to everyone in my Network Most of what I ‘know’ you have given to me. re d h a n s h e s w ro w e g d g w le n o K 3 3
  • Listening, Reading & Watching = Copying 4 4
  • The value of Music is no longer (just) in the Copy Selling ‘units’ is yesterday’s concern - and so is the definition of a ‘Sale’ Trying to maintain total control of distribution is pointless 5 5

  • The World’s OS is Morphing 7 7
  • The new OS 8 8
  • Sharing? You ain’t seen nothing yet... 9 9

  • The global switch from Closed to Open Media & Content Telecommunication Energy Business Education 11 11

  • Yet, in Music we are approaching total Copyright Gridlock 13 13
  • This is a very bad idea 14 14
  • Because... 15 15

  • What does this remind you of? “France's Ministry of Culture estimates that 1,000 people a day could be cut off from the internet under the bill. After first being sent a warning email and then a formal letter by Hadopi, those accused of illegal file- sharing for a third time could be disconnected for up to a year and face a €300,000 fine and jail time. Even those found guilty of "negligence" for allowing others (such as their children) to pirate online material risk a month-long internet suspension and a €1,500 fine..."

  • The Music Economy is Broken The System is certified dysfunctional Source: Techdirt 18 18
  • Let’s not confuse things 19 19
  • Why this can’t possibly work 200 Million users seems entirely realistic 20 songs per day = 4 Billion plays per day @ 1 Cent USD $40 Million PER DAY in license fees for the masters 14.6 BILLION USD per year in licensing costs Plus: costs for Public Performance in 50+ countries Plus: payments to composers Plus: technical costs = 50% of Google’s yearly $$ 20 20
  • And this is not a unique problem A market-driven solution is very unlikely 21 21
  • But it gets worse Private deals for public services? What choice did they have? How much control does this leave them? Is this ‘fair business practice’? 22 22
  • A market-driven solution is very unlikely "In parallel, the two companies will be working together to protect Universal Music's intellectual property and drive a material reduction in the unauthorised distribution of its repertoire across Virgin Media's network," said a statement. 23 23
  • “A new Social Contract” 24 24
  • What would this look like? First, legalize it - give permission All use - all pay * or otherwise generate $ value Many kinds of payments emerge Rights are public, open and standardized Licenses are available to every business Data-Mining and Market Access is $ value, too 25 25
  • Public License + Build-in Revenues + Proportional Distribution 26 26
  • Where will that Euro / Week come from? 27 27
  • With a new Internet Music License we don’t just sell something - we also buy 28 something! 28
  • Many other New Generatives Community Premium Services Permission High Definition & Premium Media Mobile Device Applications & Software Live-Concerts, Web-Casts, Virtual Shows... Flat Rates, Bundles, Revenue-Sharing 29 A new and very lucrative Ecosystem would emerge 29
  • We don’t pay to eat all the food... we pay for access 30 30
  • If we had a public music license, this would already be money in the bank! 31 31
  • 32 32
  • So why is there still so little revenue from Youtube, Myspace, Facebook...? • Advertisers are always 2-3 years behind • Lack of permission for legal content has resulted in much slower adoption • Lack of public license has deterred new investors • Mobile broadband and smart mobile devices are just now starting to take off 33 33
  • REVENUE Expect radical habit changes when the technology actually works 34 34
  • And this would become a huge business, too 35 35
  • With a public music license, the Longtail & Success in the Niches becomes very real, too Image: Flickr.com/WhiskersandWhispers 36 36
  • Summary: my proposal *since 1999 • Legalize it: a public, collective, open License for the use of Music online • Collaborative efforts to develop new, web-native revenue streams • A new social contract for Content 37 37
