October updates to the CEEMID databases

New updates were added to our CEEMID data catalog on 16 October.  Apart from new visualizations, we made inroads into economic impact assessment with value-added and employment multipliers.  The biggest advocacy advantage of the music industry is that it has a vast impact on employment. In the CEE region, where the automotive industry is preferred by economic policy makers, we can show that a fraction of the investment into creative industries can create many times bigger employment. Especially among young people who are extremely hit by lack of work experience and a sustainable entry into the European labor markets.

Because multiplier calculations and input-output economics is hard too, and it is a very specialized field, we made all the CEEMID program codes open source.  They will be part of the ROpenGov packages, and will be subject to peer review to avoid potential mistakes and increase usability.

Value added by music in public performance and home copying: economic theory and empirical applications in tariff setting

This presentation held on the CISAC Good Governance seminar set the basis for the later regional cooperation and the creation of the CEEMID music industry databases.  Collective management organization that represent authors in music, audiovisual and literary fields are under increasing competitive pressure from global buyers such as YouTube, Spotify and Netflix and are increasingly subject to tariff disputes and targets of competition policy.

The presentation was based on various tariff pricing and business development work carried out for the region’s largest CMO in turnover size, Artisjus in Hungary.
