Should Music Startups Give Equity to Copyright Holders?

Date: May 22, 2008
Author: Eliot Van Buskirk
QUOTE: startups typically owe more in royalties than they earn in revenue during their early stages. Page and Touve propose solving that by giving performing rights societies a percentage of equity in new firms. In return, the startups get access to the music represented by the societies without fear of legal reprisal or having to pay copyright holders cash upfront.
