Metadata & Money-flow Workshop - Make Sure You're Paid For Your Music!

There's so much to do as a musician: and every step takes so much work that it's often easy to miss some big stuff - like making sure you get paid! Yet many successful rights holders are not getting paid what they're due, and the reasons are often linked to the metadata that accompanies a recording. This workshop is for anyone who should make money from recordings, and you don't need to know how music rights work to take part: indie artists, managers, labels, publishers and rights administrators will all benefit.

Simon’s experience is in managing and claiming author rights, and Thomas’ experience is in master rights and music recognition technologies. Together, they'll give a complete overview of the subject, in an interactive, entertaining session which shows how metadata and royalties both “travel” throughout the music value chain, from the starting point of a new song being written, live in the session. You'll take away insights on best industry practices to ensure a correct royalties flow, all the ways rights are used, and will be able to ask any questions you have.

Hybrid Music Lab is a project organized by the Berlin Music Commission - the Berlin music industry’s main network and carried out on behalf of the Senate Department for Economics, Energy and Public Enterprises as part of the Berlin state initiative "Projekt Zukunft" and funded by the European Union (European Regional Development Fund).
