    MUSIC COPYRIGHT MANAGEMENT ON
                   BLOCKCHAIN:


       ADVANTAGES AND CHALLENGES

                        ABSTRACT

  The emergence of music blockchain-based platforms is
revolutionizing the online music landscape. These platforms are
hoped to enable right-holders to transact directly with end-users
without the need for the middlemen, namely collective
management organizations and commercial users. It is expected
that blockchain could help to solve the historic problems, which
are associated with the dominant position of such intermediaries
in the right management system. However, blockchain still
attracts much debate on its practical constraints. In this
research, the benefits and drawbacks of blockchain application in
the management of copyright and related rights in music online
are investigated. On that note, this research can help to elevate
the understanding of the true promise of blockchain application
in the music industry.
