The future of music licensing?
CommLawBlog
Congress could not have foreseen all of today's technologies and the myriad ways consumers and others engage with creative works in the digital environment. Perhaps nowhere has the landscape been as significantly altered as in the realm of music. With that observation nestled in the opening paragraph of a Notice of Inquiry, the Copyright Office has kicked off a wide-ranging evaluation of "the effectiveness of existing methods of licensing music." The CO's study eventually could have a dramatic impact on the uses and distribution of recorded music in all areas of American business and culture.
