Today’s highlight :

Ikebukuro venue (TIFFCOM / TIAF) of JCS 2019 has finally ended its final day.
TIMM at Shibuya venue will start next Monday, Oct.28 !

Japan Content Showcase 2019 at Ikebukuro venue (TIFFCOM / TIAF) has finally ended its final day. The bustle continued throughout the three days, with the number of participants in Screening increased to 119% , compared to last year. It can see that the number of buyers and visitors with a clear purpose has increased further, and this has led to factors such as the increased awareness of JCS which shows effectiveness as a place to develop and strengthen its all participants’ businesses. Events such as “HADO” by meleap inc. and the shamisen demonstration of Television Osaka inc. are also highly rated as “interesting” and “very attractive” by many buyers and visitors who participated.

Next week, from Monday, Oct.28th, the venue will be moved to Shibuya and the TIMM (Tokyo International Music Market) will be held. There are also many attractive and diverse programs, such as numerous business seminars and “Showcase Live”, and we look forward to your visit.

Co-organizer : ACPC (All Japan Concert & Live Entertainment Promoters Conference) Supported by British Council Music Without Barriers – improving accessibility to live entertainment

Japan’s live entertainment industry is entering a period of transformation toward the realization of an inclusive society. Raising awareness of disabling barriers and promoting understanding of LGBTQ are now common themes around the world. In this seminar, UK live music accessibility charity Attitude is Everything will share their work supporting the UK’s live music industry to improve accessibility for disabled fans and artists. The session will end with a panel discussion on the key things Japan’s industry can do to break down barriers to participation in live music.

Status of So-called “Unauthorized Music Apps” and Counter Activities of the Music Industry

So-called “Unauthorized Music Apps” that stream brand-new music tracks for free of charge, such as MusicFM, have gained a huge popularity among younger generation users in Japan. Those apps have been seriously damaging music right holders by facilitating and promoting the use of unauthorized music and have also affected healthy development of legitimate music services. The presenters will brief the status of those apps and counter activities conducted by music organizations and relevant parties.
