International Disposition of IP Rights in Music and Celebrity
Huis Vasari 15:00
Hosted by International Association of Entertainment Lawyers (IAEL) with panelist Rutger van Rompaey, General Counsel at Buma/Stemra
Weighing diverse factors, the transactions may be relatively simple or extremely complicated. In confirming the chain of title, which bears on the ultimate value to buying and selling parties, the due diligence processes may reveal unanticipated and costly complications. Some obstacles may be surmounted and some may kill the deal. The purchase agreement must contemplate pre-closing and post-closing contingencies, including litigation. A thorough review of international aspects of disposition requires further sophistication. This edition explores the sale, purchase, and collateralization of music catalogs for musical compositions, recordings, and related IP issues from the point of view of the various parties to the transaction. The authors provide practical edification and issue-raising guidance to these complex commercial transactions.
Unboxing online royalties:
How to make money as a composer, author or publisher?
Huis Vasari 11:00
With Jurjan Rietveld, Manager Online Operations and James Frostick, Head of Online Licensing at Buma/Stemra
In this workshop we’ll lift the cover from the infamous ‘black box’ and will explain why the stream value does not exist, how we come to agreement with large DSP’s and what you can do to ensure a smooth royalty flow. We’ll talk you all the way from the dealmaking process until the actual pay out and show you what’s inside the exciting box called online royalties.

Buma/Stemra and ADE are closely linked. In 1996, European dance music was starting to create a global buzz and Buma/Stemra contributed to the first edition of what is now the world’s leading dance music platform. ADE offers the perfect marketplace where composers, producers, beatmakers and DJ’s of dance music can network and present their tracks to labels and publishers.
Licensing tracks, lyrics or beats is an important business in building careers in electronic dance music, in which Buma/Stemra plays a vital role. With its international successful composers, DJ’s, labels, publishers and event organizers, the Dutch electronic dance music scene has built a vital and creative business. Creatively and economically. A good reason for Buma/Stemra to keep on supporting and be present at platforms that enable long term careers. In any kind of music.
