On today's episode we'll be talking about the music: recorded music and concerts.
20 years ago, Napster and the MP3 crushed record labels and artist revenue.

Still, iTunes, YouTube, Ticketmaster, and Live Nation control (monopolize?) the music and concert ticket industry.
Smart contracts can hold music rights information to ensure that artists, songwriters, producers, and everyone involved in the creation of a musical work get paid out correctly and efficiently.
Blockchain tech can help artists fund their projects.
