The Great Rock and Roll Swindle - Are Brands Stealing Your Music?

The big question here, the elephant in the room if you like, is this: are brands finding ways to cut music licensing costs and what, if anything should or could be done about it?
With particular reference to examples such as branded Spotify Playlists our fearless panelists will be asking ethical and legal questions about the ways in which brands are utilising music and how that impacts both positively and negatively on creators and rights-holders. What gives a brand the right to compile playlists? And do they need to get the rights-holder's permission? As new ways of using music emerge enabled by emerging technologies and social networks, who are the winners and losers?
