Music Royalties and the Future of Online Webcasting

Here’s an event no BlogTalkRadio host – or anyone interested in webcasting – should miss.

The Webcaster Settlement Act was introduced to allow webcasters to continue to negotiate new royalty agreements with copyright owners for the years 2006-2015. Written and submitted to the House and Senate for approval, it passed and now goes on to President Bush for ratification.

What do industry leaders and analysts have to say on the issue and what does this mean for online radio?

Join us on October 6 at NOON Eastern (9AM PST) for an interactive panel discussion where you’ll hear perspectives on the issue from:

• Tim Westergren, Chief Strategy Officer and Founder of Pandora
• Kurt Hanson, CEO of AccuRadio
• Alan Levy, CEO, BlogTalkRadio
• David Oxenford, Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine, LLP

The discussion will be moderated by Tom Webster, Vice President of Strategy and Marketing for Edison Media Research. Listeners can call in LIVE during the event at (347)205-9090, or submit questions before the event to Webster. The event will be streamed/archived at Edison Research and BlogTalkRadio.
