How should the streaming-income be distributed
Many people think, that Spotify and other streaming-services should distribute the income from premium-customers through a so-called user centric -model, instead of the current pro rata -model. What's the difference, and should the model be changed? There has already been a survey about the matter in Norway, and the panel will also reveal the findings of this survey.
Panelists: Lottaliina Pokkinen (Suomen Muusikkojen Liitto ry), Markus Nordenstreng (Elvis ry), Arnt Maasø (University of Oslo), Tom Pannula (Playground Music Oy)

Nordics - The Streaming Superpower
Streaming services have lifted the global music markets to a rise - and the Nordics were the first to embrace the change. How has this affected the Nordic markets' global standing? Nordic major and indie labels' representatives discuss the Nordic countries role as a testing platform for streaming, their artist export and how it has changed the labels' actions and decisions. Lukas Graham's success will be discussed as an artist export example.
