OpenMusicMedia Meet – Sounds/Clouds
This time with slightly short notice: If you are in London next Wednesday (10th September) come down to our OpenMusicMedia Meet at the William IV in East London. This time Eric Wahlforss from SoundCloud will join us for what will certainly be a lively debate.
This is a quote from his recent blog post and will explain what we will be talking about:
“The Web is a giant copying machine. And yet, if people can avoid having to copy something, they will. The problem is that today, the music industry suffers quite a bit from illegal file sharing–a giant copy party. What is going to happen over the coming years is that this copy fest will wind down.
(…) The key, being a music service or a label or an artist in this world of link-passing, is to own the most relevant copy. With most relevant I mean the most happening copy, the most accessible copy, the most usable copy, the coolest copy, the earliest copy, the most exclusive copy, the copy with the best sound quality, the most permanent copy, the most social copy, the most remixed copy, the most authentic copy, the most interoperable copy, etc.”
Please find all details here and looking forward to seeing you next week!
