Professional Guidelines for Music Licensing

Music distribution is becoming more complex as many music company websites start to distribute their own content. There are many aggregators out there that are not transparent and taking advantage of artists. These platforms are not secure and trustworthy for the professional industry. As an artist, you need to do your due-diligence; have proper release forms, E&O insurance, copyright information, etc. to submit your music to a professional platform. Content users need to learn which platforms out there are professional sources of content. At this panel discussion, you will learn how you can get your music in front of professional content users and content users will learn what signs to look out for when selecting the music from a music website.
