Music commercially released in Denmark is no longer going to be featured as often as background music in tv shows, documentaries, and podcasts by Danmarks Radio (Danish Broadcasting Corporation). In this way, DR wants to save the expenses to the rights owner.
With their cost saving exercise last autumn, DR puts forward the tendency to heavily reduce the amount of commercially released music in tv production and podcasts. This is a big problem for the music industry which is already fighting to get airplay and a spot on international streaming platforms.
This is the topic of the debate about music and public service liabilities, which also features insights into how the BBC works with British music.
In the panel you will meet Paul Moore (BBC - Music Rights & Licensing), Gustav Lützhøft (DR - Kultur, Debat & Musik), and Steven Tallamy (COO, Wise Music) as well as Anna Porse (Seismonaut) as moderator
Produced by Music Publishers Association Denmark in cooperation with Promus
