Turning down the Pink Noise: Clarifying the roles of SOCAN and Re:Sound in Canadian Theatre production

Date: Wednesday, October 11, 2017
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

What do you mean I can’t use that song during pre-show? I need to do WHAT with the lobby music? Why is it called “a tariff”?

Theatre professionals have enough on their to-do lists without adding Music Royalties – and then why do we have to worry about them anyway? SOCAN will never know.  

Compensation for music industry Artists, Workers, and intellectual property is only fair. 

This moderated session will lay out the history and reasons behind music royalties in Canada, and provide participants with a step-by-step way to understand and deal with overlapping jurisdictions.

A must-attend event for all of us who deal with budgets and contracts.
