We often talk about globalization in the music industry. Is this really happening? Obviously, global music services have somewhat facilitated the entry to new markets. But what does this actually mean to label owners? Can they export their contents to the second largest music industry or to the highest populated country in the world?

This panel discussion will bring more in-depth knowledge in digital part of business from the history of mobile & tech development through piracy to legal licensing. We will cover Korean, Japanese and Chinese markets by comparing & contrasting many elements with the European and North American music industries.
