J. Charley Londoño, Esq., President of the California Copyright Conference added: “The music industry, after many years of declining revenues, is now experiencing tremendous growth in revenues via different digital service providers such as Spotify, Apple, and Amazon, as well as an increase in revenues from the use of music in different platforms such as Pandora, SiriusXM, Netflix, and Hulu. However, this growth in revenue now requires an understanding of complex calculations for the collection of micro-pennies. This panel seeks to demystify the collection and distribution of these revenue streams to the copyright owners of musical compositions and sound recording masters.”

Taking place at the Sportmen’s Lodge Events Center in Studio City, registrants are able to begin check-in for the panel starting at 6:15 p.m. Prior to the discussion, attendees will be provided with a cocktail reception and dinner.
