The Innovation & Regulation in Digital Services Chair, organized, on September 28th, a conference on the digitization of the music industry.
The recorded music industry in the heart of the development of the economy of music, was one of the first and most affected by the digital revolution. What about this industry more than fifteen years after the first integrated offerings of digital music? Has it passed the peak of the value recomposition? How the new entrants on the distribution segment have managed to build sustainable business models – for themselves and for the industry? Are the value redistributions stabilized?
This conference was dedicated to these questions. Combining economists on cultural industries, digital and innovation on one side, and industry players on the other, it addressed this question of the “end of the digital revolution.”We welcome Hervé Glevarec, Research Director CNRS, Pr Dominique Sagot-Duvaroux, Angers University, Pr François Moreau, Paris 13 University, Dr Florian Drücke, Bundesverbandes Miskindustrie, Maurice Ronai, Research Director EHESS, CNIL Member, Anthony Belliot, Universal Music, Laurance Le Ny, Orange, Emily Gonneau, Nuägency, MyOpenTickets, Bruno Lion, Managing Director, Peermusic, David El Sayegh, General Secretary, Sacem, Marc Schwartz, Conseiller Maître, Cour des Comptes.
Summary of the conference and presentations will be available soon.
Having already spent two conferences on digital platforms, the first of which focused on the economic principles that govern their development, the second on the issue of their regulation, the Innovation & Regulation in Digital Services Chair is continuing its work on this topic. A third conferencewas organized last June 1st, 2016, focused on the economic activity of the platforms, the ecosystem transformations they generate, and the companies strategies and management to adapt to it.
