Rolling Stone Presents Exclusive Music Business Content Track

Rolling Stone editors curate its “Business of Music” series, October 17, 2019 at 12 noon at the Williamsburg Hotel.  More details on the Thursday schedule here.

The Business of Music: Charts in the Streaming Era
What’s the value of a stream versus a download? What does an album chart really measure in 2019? As music consumption shifts away from sales to streaming and fans have seemingly endless options for listening, charts get a lot more complicated — and, arguably, a lot more exciting. RS and industry players discuss what a chart does and should measure in the streaming era.

Moderator: Emily Blake, Director of Charts, Rolling Stone
Panelist: Stephen Blackwell, Managing Director, AlphaData (formerly BuzzAngle)

When is a Song a Lawsuit?
Between cases lodged against Led Zeppelin, Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran, music plagiarism cases among artists have taken center stage in 2019. RS discusses why the music industry, musicians, and fans are all up in arms about copyright law these days, and where we can possibly go from here.

Moderator: Amy X. Wang, Music Business Editor, Rolling Stone
