The RightsTech Summit is joining the New York Media Festival this year. The one-day Summit will be held on September 27th as part of New York Media Festival’s three-day event series. Other events over the three days include the Digital Music Forum, the NY Games Conference, and the Future of Television. All events will be held at at the Museum of Jewish Heritage at historic Battery Place in New York City.
The RightsTech Summit brings together creators, rights owners, technology developers, entrepreneurs, legal professionals and investors from across all media sectors for a unique, high-level discussion of innovative, technology-enabled solutions to the challenges of managing media rights and royalties on digital platforms.
The year’s summit will feature a full day of panels, keynotes, presentations, and fireside chats on topics including:
- Authentication and registration of creative works
- Data standards
- Automated licensing
- Smart contracts
- Copyright reform and the role of technology
- The rights-tech investment and M&A environment
- Royalty-based assets
- Monetizing mashups and remixes, and more.
“We thrilled to be making the RightsTech Summit part of the New York Media Festival,” said RightsTech Project co-founder Paul Sweeting. “The Festival is the premier digital media conference of the season, drawing almost 4,000 attendees over its three days. By joining forces we’ll be able to build on the success of last year’s inaugural RightsTech Summit by reaching an even larger audience and drawing greater attention to the creativity and innovation emerging from the rights-tech community.”
