Whether you've been in the music industry for years or you're an up-and-coming artist, comparatively few artists and managers know or understand what neighboring rights are, how to claim & collect them, and what they need to do to maximize these earnings. Music Biz member IAFAR, or the Independent Alliance for Artist Rights, is a new organization which was specifically formed to tackle issues across this income stream and our first port of call is to ensure that those who can earn neighboring rights money, understand how and when that is possible.
This webinar — presented by IAFAR Board members Naomi Asher (Sony/ATV), Stacey Haber (The Music Firm), Shari Hoffman (Transparence Entertainment Group) and Ann Tausis (Kobalt NR) — will dive head first into what neighboring rights (aka equitable remuneration) are, as well as dispelling myths and addressing income stream wide issues.
This week we’re considering communities both great and small; our reading list starts microscopic with Kate Brown's essay on the ecological relationships that facilitated the coronavirus pandemic, and expands to Jenna Wortham's search for a nicer and more collective internet.
We're also enjoying new fiction from Ben Lerner, appreciating more excellent reads from Seminary Co-op, and feeling inspired by many former presenters on the latest list of Powerful Women in Chicago:
Cameron Esposito’s memoir Save Yourself is a hilarious “queer-as-hell” story of how she came out and found stand up. Esposito has long garnered critical and fan support for centering her queer sexuality through stqn. Esposito will be joined by Kristen Kaza, co-founder of Slo 'Mo: Slow Jams for Queer Fam.
In fantasy novels, do teenage heroes get
their happily ever after, or is it impossible to move on from the trauma
of saving the world? Veronica Roth, best-selling author of the Divergent Series, explores this question in her newest book, Chosen Ones. Greta Johnsen, host of WBEZ’s Nerdette, will join Roth in conversation.

FROM THE ARCHIVE
Learn about the art and science of design, and how thoughtful visualizations make information accessible and useful.
Manuel Lima believes
knowledge is not only less modular and centralized than we may perceive;
it’s also more beautiful. In his follow-up to the massively popular The Book of Trees (about branches of knowledge), Lima, a data visualization specialist and Google Design Lead, brings us The Book of Circles,
in which he explores spheres of knowledge, and curates a new taxonomy
for the incredible visual diversity and—to quote Lima himself—“immensely
gorgeous” representations of what we know.
