In Association with the International Association of Entertainment Lawyers (IAEL)

For decades, music publishers, record labels and collecting societies have administered their rights on a country-by-country basis. This system functioned well when services generally operated within a single territory.However, advances in digital technology have enabled the advent of multi-territorial services, sparking a demand for "one-stop shopping" for the licensing of digital music rights.

While each country has its own national copyright law, they are harmonized to some extent by the Berne Convention and other international agreements.Recently, however, the European Union has made further efforts to harmonize the process of cross-border licensing throughout Europe.

Through the lens of digital music, this panel presentation will address how copyright licensing in the European Union differs from US practice, and how copyright licensing developments in Europe have impacted digital content delivery across borders.
