The Association of Independent Music Publishers (AIMP) wrapped a successful Global Music Publishing Summit earlier this week at the 3 West Club in New York City.
Highlights include a keynote from the iconic rapper and producer Doug E. Fresh and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee David Porter, a legislative update from the leaders of the NMPA and RIAA, and panels on AI, queer trends in sync, the global success of independent publishers, and much more.
AIMP National Chair and New York Chapter President Michael Lau, former Nashville Chapter President John Ozier, Los Angeles Chapter President Marc Caruso, and Atlanta Chapter President Tony D. Alexander kicked off the event with an update on their Chapters and the national organization.
In addition, AIMP Leadership also announced their stance on AI as part of the Human Artistry Campaign.
AIMP leaders state, “As publishers and songwriters, we are concerned about ensuring the value of the human voice, the human heart and emotion, and that any technology is used as a positive tool for ideation and not to attempt to replicate or replace that which a human songwriter is instrumental in creating. The AIMP stands with our industry counterparts in supporting the Human Artistry Campaign, a coalition of voices dedicated to keeping humans at the center of musical expression and artistry. We encourage all of you to join us and lend your support to this coalition so that as technology advances, we can ensure the future of the human creator.”
Video recordings of each panel will also be available shortly at aimp.org for AIMP members only. More information regarding next year’s event will be announced soon.
