Digital exploitation has evolved significantly as cloud-based services and new business models emerge. As the digital market diversifies and matures, and as digital initiatives become a means to legitimize markets that previously were virtually unmonetizable, digital licensing models become increasingly important.
As a result, new digital licensing issues continue to arise on a frequent basis.
Here are some key digital licensing issues that bear watching in 2012, and beyond:
- Cloud/Locker services
- Subscription services
- Collective licensing
- Digital radio/Turntable FM
- Previously unmonetized markets
This exclusive white paper was written by Jeff Liebenson, Principal of Liebenson Law in New York City and President of the International Association of Entertainment Lawyers (the IAEL). The IAEL will discuss the above issues at several of its sessions at Midem, January 28-31, 2012.
