CMU Insights will put the spotlight on the rights of songwriters and performers, streaming trends in key emerging markets and the ins and outs of brand partnerships as part of a new series of weekly webinars that will kick off later this month.

This new series of online training sessions follows the hugely popular CMU Lockdown Webinars that took place in April and May this year as the COVID-19 shutdown first took hold, and follow the same format. Hosted by CMU’s Chris Cooke, each one-hour webinar will kick off with a quick summary of the biggest music business news story of the week, followed by a 40 minute lecture on the day’s main topic, and then a live Q&A with attendees.

The topics covered also complement this spring’s season of webinars. On the copyright front there is a session looking at the rights of songwriters and performers over songs and recordings they no longer own the copyright in. And in the digital domain there’ll be fact-packed sessions on emerging markets and streaming service playlists.

Elsewhere there will be brand new webinars on topics like fanbase building, brand partnerships and direct-to-fan. Plus, in November, there will be three sessions summarising the key developments in the music business in the eventful year that has been 2020, first for the industry at large, then specifically streaming, and finally music rights.

Aware that the music industry is still facing many challenges as a result of COVID-19, CMU is also keeping the prices down for this series of webinars with special early-bird rates currently available. Access to each individual webinar is just £25, plus you can book into all nine for just £150.

CMU’s Chris Cooke says: “With our Lockdown Webinars earlier this year we were able to take our training truly global, with music industry practitioners tuning in from all over the world. For our new series of weekly webinars this autumn we have picked some great topics that both stand alone, but also continue what we started during lockdown. Plus we’ll be presenting our traditional year-in-view sessions online for the first time”.
