Eurosonic Panel 15 January 2016


At Eurosonic/Noorderslag in Groningen (the Netherlands) IAEL organised the successful Legal Panel on “Clearing Live Performances”’ moderated by Willem Roos. In front of a packed room “The Legal Panel” discussed many practical questions such as: whose and which rights should be settled before streaming a live performance? What is the role of the festival organiser, broadcasting organisation, collecting society, artists and record label? What is the impact of 360-deals ? What can go wrong if you forget to settle the rights of one of the right holders?

The Panel included Peter Marx (MVVP); Hein Fokker (content and clearance consultant for public broadcasters and Mojo for the major Dutch festivals such as Pink Pop, North Sea Jazz, Lowlands); Marcel Bunders (HellingmanBunders); Willem Roos (Höcker Advocaten); Ann Harrison (SwanTurton);  Prof. Jens Michow (Michow & Ulbricht).
