    INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS AND THE SOUTH KOREAN MUSIC INDUSTRY: ARE COPYRIGHT LAWS STRENGHTENING MAJOR LABEL MARKET POWER? by Fabie, Noah

    SM Entertainment, JYP Entertainment, and YG Entertainment, often referred to as “The Big Three”, are accredited with launching K-Pop onto the global scene. Before “The Big Three”, the South Korean music industry acclimated to tighter copyright policies between the 1960s and the late 2000s. Popular economic theory suggests that intellectual property right laws negatively impact social welfare and increase monopoly power. Using music chart data from 2011 to 2017, this analysis investigates whether or not these effects are prevalent in the South Korean music industry.

    Music discovery and consumption in a rapidly changing industry by Joel, Morgan

    The music industry is one that has been declining in overall sales for more than a decade. In recent years, advances in technology have altered many of the discovery and delivery platforms for music. The purpose of the study was to examine the different variables that affect the ways in which consumers use the internet to find and consume their music. The research uncovered a distinct difference in discovery and listening behavior between younger and older demographic groups. Digital music software, music blogs and new streaming services have become widely used among younger generations. However, the radio has been identified as the most popular method for both discovery and listening to music among older adults.

    Online music distribution by Moore, Jeffrey A.

    The music industry has seen many new forms of technology that have helped shape it to become the multi-billon dollar industry it has become today. The Internet is currently changing how artists are distributing their music as well as how consumers are receiving it. The ease of which an artist can distribute their music across the country without the help of a record label has lead to a new question as to whether or not a record contract is still necessary for an artist to succeed in the industry. This study will look at groups from the Front Range of Colorado at different stages in their musical careers to see exactly how they are using the Internet to distribute their music and to find out if any have achieved any level of financial success doing so.
