DMT 135: The World Creators Summit with SACEM, ASCAP, Peermusic, GRD, BitTorrent

This week Digital Music Trends was in Washington DC recording interviews at the World Creators Summit (organized by CISAC), an event that gathered speakers from around the world discussing author rights, policy & copyright issues keeping the creators firmly in focus. So this week’s DMT is a collection of five interviews filmed whilst over there starting with Jean-Nöel Tronc, CEO of SACEM (the French collection society), then I speak to Paul Williams, president of ASCAP and hall-of-fame songwriter (and for those of you who don’t know him go check out tracks 7 and 9 of the new Daft Punk album), then Ralph Peer, II CEO of Peermusic, a discussion on the GRD with YouTube and the Danish Songwriters Guild and finally Matt Mason, VP of marketing at BitTorrent.

I really hope you enjoy this week’s episode and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
Have a great week and ’till next time.

DMT 132: Google Music, iRadio, Slacker & iHeartRadio, GRD, Soundcloud, Midem & more

This week on Digital Music Trends I’m joined by Darren Hemmings, founder of digital marketing agency Motive Unknown, and Stephen O’Reilly, director of Topspin UK & director of International Sales at Mobile Roadie.

This week we start by talking about the Google Music breaking news story, speculating on what will happen at the Google I/O event which unfortunately is due to happen just hours after this week’s DMT recording. We also talk about Apple’s woes lining up the licenses for iRadio, the growth of internet radio services like Slacker and iHeartRadio in the US, we talk about the Global Repertoire Database initiative setting up shop in London and Berlin, Midem moving dates by a week in 2014, Soundcloud opening a NY office and the upcoming Great Escape festival in Brighton.
