Indexing at the source by creators, quality of descriptive Small Data, direct allocation of unique ID's to ease tracking of content – here are the subjects I will address in Paris at the Musimorphoses conference. In 2008, François-Xavier Nutall, Consultant supérieur / Technology Intelligence at CISAC, presented a visionary keynote on the music metadata eco-system of the near future. Seven years later, lots of it never saw the light of day even if the industry
This month of July 2015 has witnessed the publication of two important music industry studies on fair remuneration for the music industry stakeholders. The first is European, drafted by Bearing Point, commissioned by the French Ministry of Culture, and the second is American by the Berklee School of Music and partly commissioned by the Kobalt Music Group.

You don't know where the extra money went, why it took so long or what's left in your account. For most people, this would be unacceptable.

Why has TGiT chosen ISNI as a gateway identifier to pick up the pieces of the music value chain? ISNI is an open database allowing to conduct keyword search, offering an AtomPub API for developers. Thus, it is possible to verify the existence of any contributor who participated in a work of intellectual property in the ISNI database.

So you’re thinking of changing digital distribution. It’s a fairly common thing these days, distribution has changed hugely over the last 10 years. It’s gone from simply getting your releases up on digital stores, to fully featured label services, in-depth analytics and full marketing support across the world. Whether you’re thinking about switching distributor, of thinking about managing digital distribution yourself, there’s plenty to understand before taking the dive.
Transparency is a wide concept. For decades statements coming in from record labels or distribution companies have been far from easy to read or to challenge.

TGiT, a software project for the indexation of metadata to promote musical repertoire.
Music recognition technology has been with us for around for a decade. We can use a cell phone to identify a track in a few seconds. We know that digital fingerprinting technology is powerful and has many potential uses. We also know that broadcasters and media organizations have an obligation to report their music use to performing rights organizations and rights owners so that royalties can be paid. If the technology is so efficient and effective, why is it not being employed more widely?
Wonderful Cap Digital! They're showing the way.
To exist online, a work not only needs to be available in a digital format, it also needs complete and reliable metadata.
