In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Jim Lucchese, CEO of The Echo Nest, discusses the problems that his company and others like it face when seeking to license music for online (digital) use. He explains why the current legal and legislative situation makes it very difficult for secondary services like his to engage with licensing bodies, and shares some ideas for how this situation might improve in the future, thanks to new licensing schemes such as Creative Commons which are available directly to artists.
