Rethinking Royalties @ Digital Entertainment World
Recording artists, producers, mixers, and other independent contributors in the entertainment industry have been saying it for years: royalty payments are complicated; they’re inconsistent; they’re slow. In an industry burgeoning with creativity, no one has come up with—or bothered to implement—a better way to get these people paid.
It’s time for a change.
Join me, Tomas Likar, and Erik Steigen, CEO of USA Media Rights, at Digital Entertainment World while we explore the frustrations that currently exist in the royalty distribution process—and how to solve them. Our panel, which will be moderated by Ralph Simon, Chairman, Mobilium Global, will discuss the industry-specific challenges of sending royalty payments to an increasingly global roster of artists and contributors, and will unpack how payout disruption in other industries—specifically the marketplace and gig economy—could and should influence change in the entertainment space.
- WHAT: Rethinking Royalties: How the Entertainment Industry Can Modernize Payments
- WHEN: 3:30PM PST on Thursday, February 2nd
- WHERE: Palisades Room at the Marina Del Ray Marriott in Los Angeles

We look forward to rethinking the current royalty distribution process and hope to see you all at the event.
