11:00 AM - 11:45 AM PT
Spoken word audio, including comedy recordings, podcasts, poetry readings and speeches, accounts for more than one-quarter of all listening on streaming platforms and radio. But is it all being properly licensed and paid for? What rights apply to spoken word recordings and compositions? How should royalty rates be set, who should get paid, and how should the money be collected and paid out? With real money potentially at stake, the industry needs real answers to those questions. This panel will explore these questions and more.
