NetEase’s Mathew Daniel talks China, artists and publishing as ketchup
Posted on: 10 juin 2019, by : Stuart Dredge

Mathew Daniel, VP international at Chinese streaming service NetEase Cloud Music, has criticised collecting societies while suggesting that direct payments to publishers could be a better model in China.
“I have an analogy. Publishing is like a tomato-ketchup bottle. We are in the 21st century, and we are all still struggling with it,” said Daniel in his Midem keynote last week, miming someone vigorously shaking a bottle to try to get ketchup out, to illustrate his point.
“Publishing is like that: how do we get the money out… Are we just trying to keep the tomato in the bottle, and make sure it doesn’t come out? So that’s my analogy: it’s like a tomato-ketchup bottle: it’s such a struggle to get that out.”
