Do the complexities of music licensing cause the industry to lose out on creative business models? The Section 115 Reform Act (SIRA) was introduced five years ago to offer a mechanism whereby legitimate music services could clear all the necessary rights to make large numbers of musical works quickly available through blanket mechanical licensing. This year, it has been suggested that Congress should bring back the legislation and extend that blanket to synchronizations as well. Would such a change in the law put the music industry back on track? Would it be an incursion on the fair use rights of consumers? This panel will address these complex issues and many more related topics.
