 Mobile Music Revolution – Music Beyond Ringtones
To date, the business of mobile music has been mainly about ringtones.

Full track mobile download sales are growing and mobile streaming services are on the rise as well, with potential to further music sales through personalized recommendation engines.

9:30am - 10:30am
PANEL 1: Device & Format Wars:
Who Will Be the Winners & the Losers?
For the past 2 years, Apple has dominated the device market with its iPod player and proprietary iTunes format. With the rollout of Microsoft’s Zune player, a battle over devices and formats is beginning to take shape. Meanwhile, there is growing support for MP3 as the industry standard. Who will be the winners and losers? This panel of experts will discuss developments which will tip in favor of one device or format over the other. What is the likely effect on consumers? Is there an end in sight, where we might see a world where devices and formats do not restrict use and portability?

11:30am – 12:30pm
PANEL 2: Digital Copyrights: The Wild West All Over Again?
The music industry has been completely turned upside-down by the growth of the Internet and the new digital world. At the same time, copyright laws still stem from the analogue days of sheet music and orchestra performances. Clearly, something needs to change. The industry has tried rear guard actions like lawsuits, but music consumers are still filling up their players with unlicensed music and the RIAA is still battling with technology companies over new innovations. This panel of music and copyright experts will discuss what needs to happen so that artists can live off their creativity, labels and publishers can see a fair return on their investments, technology companies have an incentive to innovate and receive a fair share of the pie and music fans can satisfy their current hunger for and exploration of new and/or alternative music.

Discovery and recommendation services are changing the way we find the music we like.  As more music becomes available online and the long tail gets longer, improved search, filters, discovery and recommendation services are going to play a more important role in online commerce.  This panel of experts will discuss the latest developments in discovery and recommendation services.

TRACK 2, PANEL 3: Redefining Radio (At Least That's What We Used To Call It)

While competition in the Internet and satellite markets intensifies, traditional radio broadcasters are increasingly repositioning themselves as multi-faceted media brands that provide a range of services – including on-demand news and music and online social networking - to their listening audiences. Does the localization of traditional radio broadcasters give them an advantage over competitors in the satellite and online space? Can traditional radio broadcasters succeed in converting loyal listeners to online community? This panel of industry experts will discuss consumer response to new “radio” services and offerings. Who will be the winners and losers in the changing world of radio?

This panel of A&R executives and their digital counterparts discuss the future of A&R. What innovative techniques are being used by creative A&R execs that are changing the A&R landscape?
