AGENDA

9:00 AM – 9:10 AM:  WELCOME & INTRODUCTORY REMARKS

Speakers: Paul Sweeting, Editor-in-Chief, RightsTech / CEO, Concurrent Media Strategies and Ned Sherman, Publisher, RightsTech/ CEO, Digital Media Wire,  

9:10 AM – 10:00 AM:  RESTORING REGISTRATION TO THE COPYRIGHT EQUATION (MCLE Provided)

At its core RightsTech is about registries and ledgers. Formal registration with the Copyright Office is no longer required for works to be protected by copyright in the U.S. But as markets for digital works grow more complex and diverse the need for comprehensive, trusted registries of works and rights holders grows more urgent. How can public ledger technologies like blockchain fill that need and help markets flourish?

Speakers: Greg McMullen, Chief Policy Officer, Ascribe, Robert NortonCEO, Verisart, Jim GriffinManaging Director, OneHouse, Kevin McCoy, CEO, Monegraph 
Moderator: Larry Miller, Clinical Associate Professor & Director, Music Business Program, NYU Steinhardt 

10:00 AM – 10:50 AM: MACHINE-READABLE RIGHTS (MCLE Provided)

One goal of RightsTech is to replace human intermediaries with machines in transactions involving content rights. To do that, rights information and content metadata has to be reduced to machine-readable forms. How are different industries grappling with the challenge of collecting and standardizing rights information and metadata into machine-readable formats?

Speakers: David Hughes, CTO, Recording Industry Association of AmericaJesse Walden, Co-founder, Mediachain LabsBill Wilson, VP Digital Strategy, Music Business Association , Michael Huppe, CEO, SoundExchange

12:25 PM - 1:05 PM: CRYPTO-CURRENCIES, SIDE-CHAINS AND FIAT PORTALS

Bitcoin, Ether, crypto-USD. What is the role of crypto-currencies in RightsTech marketplaces? Is the Bitcoin blockchain the only game in town or will media-specific and currencies also play a role? Will fiat-pegged cryto-currencies be part of the mix?
