With the accelerating pace of technological change, the League posts a monthly digest of relevant news and information regarding changes, trends, and developments that may affect the digital media activities that orchestras use. For each monthly digest, the League’s digital media consultants, Michael Bronson and Joe Kluger, draw from a variety of websites and publications to provide excerpts or summaries of articles. (These do not necessarily represent the views of the League.) Among the topics this month: the new Music Modernization Act will create a copyright licensing organization; the impact and importance of the European Union’s recent General Data Protection Regulation; film musicians’ residuals fund collects a record $100 million; Deutsche Grammophon celebrates its 120th anniversary by teaming with Google to share some of its earliest recordings. As a service of the League, members with questions about the information in this digest or about other digital media topics—e.g., planning, strategy, and production—may contact Michael Bronson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Joe Kluger at jkluger@artsEmedia.com.
