But How Will I Get Paid? - Reimbursement in a Digital World
This panel will discuss the mechanical licensing role and how digital distributors have stepped up to ensure that publishers and songwriters get paid for online music distribution. Typical entities have not taken on this responsibility in the physical world, but with the digitalization of music, the business practice has changed. This group will explore the paper trail of policies and online reimbursement considering how some services don't pay publishers directly and pass-through mechanical royalties to labels and distributors with no accountability back to the publishers and songwriters. These experts will weigh in on these digital front-burner issues.

Music And Advertising: A Subconscious Cognitive Impulse Explosion
Take a minute to think of what goes on when you look at an advertisement. The cognitive process of visualization coupled with music is pretty powerful. It is proven through empirically tested heuristics that when these two components come together correctly, the outcome is very seductive. CMJ badge-holders have the opportunity to submit their own music as a score for filmed advertisements. Submit your music via the website link below to be heard by ad executives and possibly be included for discussion during this panel.

A Full-On Major (Label, Publishing, Management, Agency, Legal) Pitch Session
