The Future of Radio and Digital Music

Tim Westergren, Chief Strategy Officer & Founder of Pandora

RSVP required (rsvp@cyber.law.harvard.edu)

The arc of Pandora as a technology company moving through the dot-com boom, bust, and rebirth has provided a great foundation for discussions of topics ranging from seed investing and early stage growth, to bridge loans, deferred salary and mezzanine financing; from intellectual property questions and competitive positioning to viral marketing and managing a rapidly growing consumer service during an economic crisis.   Additionally, Pandora has been engaged in a battle over royalty rates for the past 18 months which lends itself to a whole host of additional discussion topics such as copyright law and grassroots movements (we engaged our listeners in a campaign to save net radio which resulted in millions of calls, faxes and emails to capital hill).
