Simple-to-see dashboards offer the transparency for users and compliance with on-going changes to legislation. Rights management technologies offer the potential for a traditionally fragmented industry to become more cohesive and collaborative, so what will drive real developments in effective rights technology? Should we look to legislators to impose new systems on the digital music sphere or is technological innovation the real enabler of a new music ecosystem?
