Dissecting The Digital Dollar

Following the launch yesterday of the ‘Dissecting The Digital Dollar’ report by the Music Managers Forum and our consultancy division CMU Insights, we’ve now published one of those infographic things to summarise the introduction CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke gave to the whole project.

As previously reported, this in-depth report based on nine months of research sets out to explain in clear terms how streaming services are licensed, by reviewing copyright law basics, the traditional music rights industry, and how digital business models have evolved over the last ten years. It then summarises seven key issues the music community now faces, with the aim of kickstarting a debate in the management and artist community.

You can check the introductory infographic, explaining why the report is needed, below, and then download the full report here or just the executive summary here.
