Jax Daily Songwriters Music Modernization Copyright Act

For over a decade the music industry has failed at establishing an updated music copyrights law that works for streaming services. The new Music Modernization Copyright Act that has passed is not able to correct the flaws that exist in getting songwriters paid for their work. In an effort to update music copyright law for the digital age, the various players involved — tech companies, music publishers, songwriters, musicians and radio broadcasters — assembled an ambitious bill that addressed their concerns.

Jax Daily How blockchain technology with Get Artists paid
Here’s what interests me about blockchain technology and the entertainment industry:

How many times have we heard the infamous case study of a band being signed to a major label, only to sue them (and usually their manager) a few years later after realizing they’d been skimped on millions of dollars in royalties? That has been happening since the days of Elvis.

What’s interesting about blockchain technology is that, by using what are called “smart contracts,” those contracts are executed on automatically through the blockchain. So, if a band signs to a label and their contract states that they receive 70% of every dollar made, with the label receiving 30%, those distributions happen every time a dollar enters the door — assuming all of this is being done on the blockchain.

No more relying on a person to count the dollars. No more trusting other people to deliver on the contract. It all happens on the blockchain, and is validated through math. The whole idea behind blockchain technology is trust. Transparency. Everything is out in the open, and anything that gets processed through the blockchain can be seen and validated by anyone on the blockchain.

What we learned from VidCom 2018
With all the recent additions to every social media app, you may have noticed that they now are very similar. This was a hot topic at VidCom this year so much in fact that VidCom is noting that they will be having a hard time deciding platforms to feature in the coming conferences.  Influencers certainly will be both excited by the options but also confused by them with the big question remaining, where do I build my audience?
