Since Napster 1.0 in 1999, digital music services have evolved in computers, our cell phones, home wifi speakers, and connected cars. But despite this growth and the availability of millions of licensed songs, we still only have a few models to choose from ($9.99/month and DMCA radio). Will these two models successfully serve the mass market? Will they deliver the right value back to artists? What's next? In this panel of experts, we will pull apart some of the problems, discuss what is needed in the next generation of music apps, and talk to some of the most innovative services trying to break through the barrier.
