Legal Panel ‘Clearing Live Performances’ at Eurosonic/Noorderslag very successful
At Eurosonic/Noorderslag in Groningen (the Netherlands) IAEL organised the successful Legal Panel on “Clearing Live Performances” moderated by Willem Roos. In front of a packed room “The Legal Panel” discussed many practical questions such as: whose and which rights should be settled before streaming a live performance? What is the role of the festival organiser, broadcasting organisation, collecting society, artists and record label? What is the impact of 360-deals ? What can go wrong if you forget to settle the rights of one of the right holders? The panel concluded that knowing who to call at the right time is key to streaming successfully.
