James Sammataro is one of the top music industry attorneys. And like many music biz barristers, he's witnessing an alarming swell in copyright infringement lawsuits -- some of which are pretty questionable. But even if a claim is flimsy, that doesn't mean an ill-educated jury won't award a multi-million dollar award to the litigating troll. Just as…
 
Lucidious was a talented musician with a growing fanbase and a well-paying day job. But he also couldn't get onto a Spotify playlist to save his life.

Ari Herstand, author of How to Make It In the Ne…

Zöe Keating lost her husband and business partner in 2015, leaving the cellist extraordinaire a single mother. But what happened next was astonishing: Keating soldiered on, determined to continue her unlikely success as a touring and recording avant-garde classical cellist. But it was her fans that made it impossible for her to leave. Keating die-h…
 
Headphones are dangerous, simply because they block out everything else. Yet everyday, millions of people drive, bike, scooter, and operate machinery with headphones blaring. But what if you could hear what's going on and still listen to the audio? Bethesda, MD-based David Nghiem is one person trying to solve this riddle. Nghiem noticed that munici…

One of…
 
In October of 2018, the music industry passed a momentous bill: the Music Modernization Act, or MMA. The sweeping law opened a brand-new process for streaming giants like Spotify to pay songwriters, and ordered the creation of a dedicated organization to track, collect, and pay those royalties to publishers and songwriters. Just one question: who's…

Invest in the right music startup, and you're a billionaire. Make the wrong bet, and you're out of $5 million (or in court for five years). But that's true for any investment risk involving new ideas and sectors. So why are investors still gun-shy around music startups and concepts? I assembled three experts in Hamburg, Germany to help me answer th…
 
And if it's not one of these three startups, it will likely be one of their competitors.

If you haven't heard of quadraphonic sound, join the club. The early-stage surround sound technology quietly died in the late 1970s, and was ultimately supplanted by innumerable other spatial audio technologies. In its heyday, it was used by the likes of Pink Floyd and The Who. Quadraphonic sound was all about 4-speaker surround sound (technically …

In this episode, we talk to Scott Schreer, one of the most successful jingle writers in history - and one of the best people to talk to about this…
 
Both were amazingly huge rap songs that left questionable legacies behind. But which is ultimately the more epic track: "Ice Ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice, or "U Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer?

It's the most contentious music copyright battle of the past decade.
