The latest series of CMU webinars kicked off earlier this week with three sessions explaining the ins and outs of the ongoing economics of music streaming debate.

You can still sign up and access a recording of this week’s first session, and then access the second and third sessions either as they go out live or subsequently on-demand.

The three webinars are as follows…

How The Streaming Business Works 
To participate in all the digital dollar debates, you need to understand how the streaming business model works. In this webinar we run through the licensing deals negotiated between the music industry and the key digital services, explaining how everyone gets paid.

The Digital Pie Debate 
Is the way streaming revenue gets shared out across the music community fair? Many people argue it is not and have proposed alternative approaches to slicing the digital pie, some of which involve changes to copyright law. This webinar explains each of the proposals.

The Data & Transparency Debates 
Issues around music rights data create complexities and inefficiencies in the digital music market. Meanwhile a lack of transparency makes it difficult for music-makers to understand how different digital services impact on their own artist businesses. This webinar sets out the issues and considers the proposed solutions.
