Music confab to focus on India issues
Nokia Music Connects held in Mumbai Sept. 1-2NEW DELHI -- The Nokia Music Connects conference will be held September 1-2 in Mumbai, featuring key industry delegates who will discuss various issues facing the Indian music business.
Now in its second year, “Nokia Music Connects 2010 – The Indian Music Forum” is jointly organised by Hong Kong-based Music Matters and Indian media portal Radioandmusic.com, supported by industry bodies Indian Music Industry and Phonographic Performance Ltd.
The conference will be split into three modules: India in India, India to the World and The World to India. It will cover issues related to mobile/digital business, monetizing piracy and effective anti-piracy models, regional music and other genres and copyright law.
Considering the heated debate in recent months between the film and music industry with the government over proposed amendments in the existing copyright law, over various issues especially relating to revenue sharing between film producers and music composers, copyright issues could be a key discussion topic.
Speakers include leading Indian and international professionals such as Broadcast Music Inc. executive director, Writer/Publisher Relations, Europe & Asia Brandon Bakshi, Deep Emotions/Universal Music Publishing India MD Achille Forler, Channel V India MD Prem Kamath, Universal Music India MD Rajat Kakar, Sony Music India MD Shridhar Subramanium, leading concert promoter DNA Networks MD Venkat Vardhan, event management company Wizcraft Entertainment director Sabbas Joseph and key executives from leading telecom players such as Bharti Airtel and Tata Teleservices.
