The Importance of Credits

September 4, 2017 Comments off

Another outstanding podcast from Portia Sabin’s Future of What podcast, this time with the music credits services Jaxsta and Discogs on the importance of credits.  Credits are also known as the moral right of attribution, currently under review at the U.S. Copyright Office.  Yet another artist rights area where the U.S. lags behind the rest of the world.  (See also Robert Levine’s recent post on Billboard about Auddly, a different and also important approach to the credit issue and my previous post on how Facebook sell artist names as keywords without rights.)
