Chris Cooke

New addition to the SPOT+ programme focuses on the strained relationship between the video-sharing website and the music industry.

In a new addition to the seminar programme CMU MD and Business Editor Chris Cooke will explain the strained relationship between YouTube and the music industry, reviewing the so-called “safe harbours” that YouTube relies on and how the European Copyright Directive may change them. But also why YouTube at the same time is  a key partner for artists and labels.

Joining Chris Cooke in the panel will be Niels Mosumgaard, chairman of DPA (Danish Songwriters Guild) and Koda (Collective Rights Management Society), and member of the Danish Parliament, Rasmus Nordquist from The Alternative –  he’s the party’s spokesman on Cultural affairs.
