About the Program

Imagine Spotify or Apple Music crossed with Charles Schwab or Robinhood, so you can press play to listen to a song, and then press “invest” to buy a share of that song’s royalty stream. That’s the vision of a merry band of “music stock market” platforms looking to lure loot from music-loving traders who want to speculate on the next big song, as an alternative to traditional stocks, bonds, or crashing cryptocurrencies. Some say it could end “artist poverty” and make investors rich, others say its not a terrific investment but lots of fun for fans.

For legal practitioners, it is imperative to examine the regulatory landscape surrounding these platforms, considering the potential implications for intellectual property, securities laws, and contractual arrangements within the music industry. Will this emerging trend in the intersection of music and finance necessitate legal adaptations to safeguard the interests of all stakeholders?
