The future of the music industry is filled with questions about copyright protection, downloading, and artists’ rights. A panel of experts weighs in on the topic via WNYC’s Soundcheck. Guests include Moby, the electronica superstar, activist and entrepreneur; Hilary Rosen, a music consultant and the former chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America; and Terry McBride, the maverick head of Nettwerk Music Group, an indie label/management/publishing group that is threatening to transform the way the music industry does business. Moby, who has just released a new album of greatest hits, also performs live in the studio.
