In the 4th Vienna Music Business Research Days the “Future of Music Licensing” was highlighted. The conference, therefore, focused on collective rights management and collecting societies respectively as well as the registration of music rights. However, in a broader perspective also the future of copyright in a digital society was discussed.
In the opening panel of the conference on Thursday the concept of creative commons licensing and the set-up of a collection society for CC-licensing by the C3S initiative in Germany was controversially discussed.
The first conference day, however, was devoted the 3rd Young Scholars’ Workshop. Fourteen young academics from 8 different countries – Australia, Austria, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Palestine and Portugal – presented their papers on a wide range of music business research topics.
