Independent label distributors and fair streaming: activists of the digital revolution
Speakers : Bas Grasmayer (Zvooq I NL) / Eric Petrotto (CD1D - 1DTouch I FR) / Trond Tornes (Phonofile I NO)
Moderation : Pascal Bertin (Journalist I FR)
New streaming and download platforms have revolutionised access and today play an essential role in the music industry. These pioneers have brought about deep changes in the sector and have opened up new possibilities. In a time of often free access for all, some people are striving to make over the economic model of these new platforms as they are concerned about fair redistribution of the profits made from millions of plays online. This Keynote Q&A will focus on these activist distributers who are collaborating on an international scale to recreate a virtuous cycle for listeners and creators, keeping the equity and diversity in mind.
