Music Metadata Means More Money for Musicians with ASCAP Senior VP of Distribution and Repertory, Lynne Lummel in Room 15.
Music recognition technology has been with us for around for a decade. We can use a cell phone to identify a track in a few seconds. We know that digital fingerprinting technology is powerful and has many potential uses. We also know that broadcasters and media organizations have an obligation to report their music use to performing rights organizations and rights owners so that royalties can be paid. If the technology is so efficient and effective, why is it not being employed more widely?
