Give me Five ! The 5 Music Rights in Action
High-level policy-makers at the Forum
Our confirmed two special guests will participate to the session on 29 September, 14:00-17:30 :
Fifth Right – Just Recognition and Fair Remuneration
In order to have fair remuneration for all musical artists there has to be just recognition of their contribution to the musical ecosystem, but, besides that, there needs to be consciousness about the value of music. It is value for artists, for listeners and for the society as a whole. Join us in an in-depth discussion on the prerequisites for a thriving and diverse musical landscape, and how it can affect your society when the creatives, globally, are said to obtain an even stronger role in the future.
In all sessions, speakers from five continents will share their experiences to inspire all of us to work together towards stronger Music Rights for all. Check our final programme here!
