    Learn about the evolution of digital distribution and the importance of consistent metadata in today’s music industry. We will look at the whole chain, from the quality of the metadata that should be going in, how and where this metadata is being used, to the data coming back, and what rights holders should be focusing on to maximise the value of their catalogue and using data to their advantage.
