Jodie Ferneyhough


Manitoba Music is pleased to present a workshop developed by Cultural Human Resources Council on music industry rights and royalties. Led by music industry veteran Jodie Ferneyhough (CCS Rights Management Toronto), this workshop will explore licensing, performance, mechanical, synchronization and print rights, as well as non-publishing income.

With all of the uncertainty in the music industry, effective rights management remains an essential element of a successful career in music – whether its understanding how performing rights income is collected and distributed in different territories, being aware of other multi-format rights such as neighbouring rights and digital rights income, or understanding when and how to audit to make sure you are being properly compensated for your rights.

This workshop is a pilot seminar for a national course curriculum on rights management in the music industry, and is designed to provide useful day-to-day operational information from both business and legal perspectives.
