Cloud computing is the biggest buzz word in content distribution these days, but questions remain about licensing issues, payment schemes and the “sanitizing” of illegally obtained files. File sharing sites continue to be a target of lawsuits from content owners and trade groups: in some cases winning (YouTube), losing (KaZaa), winning but still losing (Veoh), and losing but still winning (Limewire). Our panel will discuss these issues, the state of the law on cloud storage and file sharing, and how these two distinct types of services relate to one another.

SoundExchange will explain how registering (free!) with them can earn you royalties for plays on satellite radio, Internet radio, cable TV music channels and other services that stream sound recordings. SoundExchange is a non-profit, and an important source of revenue for all artists (big and small) and labels (indie and major): they've distributed over $800 million to artists and labels so far. But thousands of artists and labels don't know they need to register, and millions in royalties haven't yet been claimed. Interactive and question-driven, this workshop will also cover need-to-know info on copyright, licensing, metadata, and legislation that will affect your career.
