International Disposition of IP Rights in Music and Celebrity

Thursday 20/10
Huis Vasari 15:00

Hosted by International Association of Entertainment Lawyers (IAEL) with panelist Rutger van Rompaey, General Counsel at Buma/Stemra

Music catalog sales, purchases, and collateralization are ubiquitous and varied. IP assets may be sold and purchased in whole, in part, in pieces, and for value based on many considerations. 

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?

Thursday 20/10
Huis Vasari 11:00

With Jurjan Rietveld, Manager Online Operations and James Frostick, Head of Online Licensing at Buma/Stemra

Online revenues are an increasingly important revenue stream for our rights holders. But how do we get to the amount ending up on your bank account?

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.

Rise Up - female entrepreneurhip
 in music

Huis Vasari 11:30

With Josette Dijkhuizen Professor (Female Entrepreneurship) and Rapper, Singer/Songwriter Producer Zanillya Farrell, Celine Cairo Singer/Songwriter & Romy Dya R&B Pop Artist & Songwriter

We believe we can boost musical talent by creating better opportunities for women in music. That's why we launched Rise Up. This programme is aimed at women music makers and works with the music industry to promote more equality and diversity.

During Buma Music in Motion, we’ll be talking to experts and music makers about female entrepreneurship. Josette Dijkhuizen, entrepreneur and professor (female entrepreneurship), and music makers Zanillya Farrell, Celine Cairo and Romy Dya share their experiences and expertise on the topic: The context, the urgency and the future.

We warmly invite you to attend this panel from 11:30 to 12:15 and then put the knowledge into practice.

Because every creator is entitled to the same opportunities to work professionally in the music industry!

Thursday 20/10
Felix Meritis 16:00

Daan Determeijer & Michiel Laan (Buma/Stemra)

Music societies sometimes tend to focus on the total revenues they make. However, at the end of the day it is not about how much music a music society makes, but the money a creative makes with this. Daan and Michiel will walk you through several examples of the money a music society as Buma/Stemra generates for different types of composers.

Followed by a symposium at 17:30 with a recap of the panels on this subject and a debate about how both new and traditional societies and organisations can continue to improve their service, make fair and equitable payments the norm, and how marginal/underground artists can finally access the income they have rightly earned through the intelligent use of transparent technologies. 

Symposium - Your Music Your Rights Your Money

Thursday 20/10
Felix Meritis 17:30

Marc Azais (SACEM), Zak Khutoretsky (DVS1, Aslice), Greg Marshall (Electronic Music Industry Consultant), Marc Olivier Deblanc (Barnett Law Firm), Frank Rodi (AlphaTheta/Pioneer DJ), Tjeerd Bomhof (FXR), Daan Determeijer (Buma/Stemra), Michiel Laan (Buma/Stemra) more TBA

Moderator: Jessica Ibgui

Following directly on from a series of debates and presentations covering every aspect of the collection and distribution of income derived from intellectual property, this symposium brings together traditional and new generation collecting societies.

There will be a lightning-fast review of the major learnings from the day, followed by a debate about how both new and traditional societies and organisations can continue to improve their service, make fair and equitable payments the norm, and how marginal/underground artists can finally access the income they have rightly earned through the intelligent use of transparent technologies.

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.
