As the stats start to come in for the music business year just gone, debates will inevitably begin over the state and future of the streaming services, and whether current business models are sustainable and fair.

To participate in that debate you really need to understand the complexities of the music industry’s deals with the streaming services, and how royalties are calculated and paid each month.

That’s where the CMU Insights masterclass ‘Dissecting The Digital Dollar’ comes in. In one afternoon we’ll explain how those deals work, while also providing you with the background knowledge you need about copyright law, record deals and collective licensing.

Based on five years of research work for the UK’s Music Managers Forum, this masterclass also reviews those various ongoing digital dollar debates, summarising the arguments on all sides, allowing you to reach an informed opinion on where the streaming music business will go and should go next.

The masterclass takes place on Monday 2 Mar at the London HQ of Lewis Silkin. Tickets are currently available here at the early bird rate of £80 plus VAT.
