Jesper Skibsby


From PRO’s and Performance to Streaming and Radio plugging. The global music industry of today is very much based on various methods of reporting - but how do they work? There is a very big difference in Reporting versus Monitoring, and there are many different ways to monitor the activities.

This session will be a quick run-through of reporting vs. monitoring in the music industry from a general perspective and the advantages of utilizing Music Recognition Technology such as Audio fingerprint recognition to create a globally transparent music industry that benefits not only the big music companies, but especially the artists, songwriters, small labels, managers, publishers, etc. in the music reporting vs. monitoring process.
