Norway, Denmark, Namibia, Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, Swaziland, Botswana and the United Kingdom are represented at the KZN Music Imbizo 2016 in Durban (South Africa) from August 25 to 27 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
The marketing manager of the Phonofile (Trond Tornes, Norway) will be part of a panel discussion that will be looking at ONLINE DISTRIBUTION. He will be joined by Stephen Mayall (MusicAlly, United Kindgom). The panel will be looking at what THE GLOBAL MUSIC REPORT by IFPI tems “the value gap”. The value gap is about the gross mismatch between music being enjoyed by consumers and the revenues being returned to the music community.
They will be joined by the head of operation for Deezer in Africa, Gillian Ezra and Julian Van Plato, digital content creator and the founder of BalconyTV Johannesburg.
Intellectual property in the continent is still very poorly protected. Nothando Migogo (CEO of CAPASSO), Victor Mampane (SAMRO), Dodo Monamodi (IMPRA) John Max (NASCAM, Namibia) and Keitsing Monyatsi (CIPA, Botswana) will take use through their roles in making sure that the continent understands the concept and what steps are made in making sure that the owner of the property is properly compensated throughout the continent.
