17 Dec 2021 - "Copyright Clearance for Live Streaming"

Joint Webinar by LESI Copyright Committee, LES Singapore andLES Thailand “Copyright Clearance for Live Streaming”

Covid-19 pandemic has caused many entertainment venues to close. To continue to bring music to the people, many singers and musicians are performing “live” on the internet. Their performances will be streamed “live” into your home via channels such as Facebook and YouTube.
Music publishers in the region are claiming that such “live” performances require not only a licence for “communication with the public” but also synchronisation licence. This means that organisers of such events not only need to obtain a licence from a collective management organization (CMO) for public performances but also from a CMO for reproduction rights or music publishers. There is not only added administrative hassle but also costs.
This webinar will discuss the myriad of copyright clearances applicable to usage of works on various online platforms.

Speakers include:
• George Hwang, Director at GEORGE HWANG LL.C. (Moderator)
• Candra Darusman, President at Musicians Union of Indonesia
• Siriyah Boonyatikarn, General Manager at Music Copyright Thailand Co., Ltd.
• Roger Zimmermann, Professor at School of Computing, National University of Singapore (NUS)

Date: 20:00-21:00, 17 Dec 2021 (Singapore Time, GMT+8)
