RAIN Summit brings in experts to discuss revenue models and royalty matters

Friday, February 15, 2013 - 12:05pm

We're happy to announce Triton Digital's Dominick Milano and leading webcasting legal authority David Oxenford as speakers at RAIN Summit West this April.

Milano's company, Triton Digital, is a digital services provider for broadcast and Internet radio. Its products include in-stream ad services Streaming Console and Station Console, and audience measurement service Webcast Metrics. Triton recently announced the launch of its targeted audio ad exchange solution a2x (here), and its partnership to launch "programmatic audience buying product" Xaxis Radio (more here).

Milano, a Triton partner since its inception, was recently named (in RAIN here) President of Publisher Development when the company realigned its executive structure. All publisher-facing activity is now managed centrally by Milano, who's spent the last five years evangelizing for, and helping clients with, local media's digital transformation.

Milano (right) will speak on the panel "Jump Start Your Revenue," an examination of the wide array of revenue strategies, from subscriptions and donations to ad networks, ad exchanges, and affiliate programs.

Washington, D.C.-based partner with Wilkinson, Barker, Knauer LLP David Oxenford is Internet radio's leading authority on issues related to performance royalties, the Copyright Royalty Board, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. An esteemed veteran of our RAIN Summit events, Oxenford (left) represents broadcast and digital media companies, including a number of Internet radio companies, before the Copyright Office, the CRB, and other government agencies. He advises on music royalty issues as well as other general business and regulatory matters.

Recently, Oxenford wrote about real marketplace royalty settlements (involving both SiriusXM Radio here and broadcasters like Clear Channel and Entercom here) and the potential impact on CRB-determined industry Internet radio royalties. Oxenford will lead the panel "The Song Plays On," and discuss the ongoing royalties matter, taking into account both musicians' and webcasters' points of view.

RAIN Summit West is Sunday, April 7 in Las Vegas. The annual full-day Internet radio conference is a co-located education program of the NAB Show. Now in its 12th year, the Summit focuses on the intersection of radio and the Internet. Keynoting the even will be RAB president and CEO Erica Farber (more in RAIN here) and Rhapsody International president Jon Irwin (more here).
