DRM and Online Music: Mark Lam, CEO, Live365.com
Federal laws governing licensing fees still have to catch up with the reality of internet technology, according to Mark Lam, CEO of Live365.com, which streams music and more â€” from local football and neighborhood churches to the likes of music by David Byrne and Santana. PodTech’s Michael Johnson talked to Lam and Live365’s Damon Ferrara at the Bandwidth music and technology conference in San Francisco.
Reporter’s notes: Lam was passionate about what he sees as a lack of parity in music licensing fees. He’s not alone: Cameron Lombardi of News.com profiles another DRM legal dustup. Jimmy Palmer also tracks DRM news in his blog.
