Episode 4: Caribbean music, broadcast media and intellectual property – Laura and Nigel chat about the reality of the slightly behind-the-curve business models and thinking about broadcast media, and its role in distributing music and creating economic rights for artists, composers, producers and performers in the Caribbean. Laura’s recent trip to Jamaica to cover its Carnival showcased how the modern music “merchants,” the soca artists of today are distributing their music, and how the Carnival circuit is expanding for year-round exploitation of potential royalties from public performance and from radio airplay.
