Many entrepreneurs face the challenge of acquiring content and the necessary rights to use it. This panel will boil it down to the essentials: who are the rights holders? What are your options? How do I get to key decision makers?
We will discuss hot button topics such as direct licensing vs. blanket licensing, the pros/cons of safe harbor/DMCA protection, specific right clearances needed for each type of content use (e.g. synch/mechanical/performance), international issues, current industry trends and the legal environment.
