Visit http://www.MichaelBrandvold.com This week's episode #215 we are joined by Keith Bernstein from CrunchDigital.com to discuss royalties and licensing in the digital age. We answer these questions:
What is causing music revenue to appear to be going down or not growing when you hear about all these digital music services that see to be exploding in growth and adaption?
How easy it for music apps to license music?
Why isn't there a global rights database?
Do you think digital services have a lot of unpaid royalties that are sitting in a "black box?"
