COPYRIGHT: VIRTUAL CONCERTS ON SOCIAL NETWORKS
Until COVID-19, never had streaming attracted so much attention. In the absence of live concerts, artists have decided to broadcast their performances through channels such as YouTube Live, Twitch, Facebook Live or Instagram Live Stories with the aim of connecting with their audiences through these platforms and reaching a potential target audience that was previously unreachable.
Artist promotion has worked, but are intellectual property rights protected, and is there legislation related to this new practice? This panel discussion will address these and other questions about virtual concerts on social networks.
