Summary

This panel will look at the emergence of NFTs, their characteristics, their application to musical assets and their impact on copyright management. The conversation will also consider the evolution and recent growth of investment funds for purchasing music IP, from ‘Bowie Bonds’ to Hipgnosis, and models based on debt without transfer of intellectual property. How is this growth changing the sector and how might it change it in the future? What threats and opportunities does it pose for creators? Is the market saturated or are there still opportunities to be harnessed? Where is the market headed? The panel will reflect on these questions and more.
