Metadata: The Backbone Of Digital Music Commerce

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

  • Bill Wilson

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Who cares about metadata? You should. In a world where millions of digital music transactions take place on a daily basis, it's more important than ever that music, video, and application content appears correctly in digital storefronts, customers can find them, and that the right songwriter, artist and/or content owner gets paid.

This panel will review the current landscape and make sense of the various identifiers such as ISRC, ISWC, GRID, ISNI as well as XML communications standards such as DDEX ERN and DSR messages. We'll also cover why these common systems are critical as the backbone of digital music commerce from the smallest indie artist to the biggest corporate commerce partners.
