On October 8, 2015, OMDC went on the road to Ottawa with its last Digital Dialogue Breakfast topic for the year. The panel focused on everything you thought you knew about negotiating rights, royalties and license fees that changed when your content moved from traditional distribution across platforms to the digital space.

The panelists shared their experiences in this new marketplace, with experience negotiating with broadcasters, technology companies, other content creators and streaming services for screen-based, music and published content. Exploring new revenue sources through collaboration was discussed.
