Frank Johnson, MediaNet CEO, will appear Tuesday, March 17 at the Hilton Austin Downtown for a discussion on Finding the Best API for Your Music App as part of the SXSW Music Festival. The discussion will be moderated by Music Biz’s Bill Wilson and will also include Rachel Scarpati of HFA, Mohamed Moutadayne of LyricFind and Tom Rettig of Gracenote.



A full description of the hour-long panel discussion, which begins at 3:30 p.m., follows below:

Creating the backend architecture for a new music app can be daunting, with myriad legal issues, financial concerns, and time-management challenges to address. Many sites are being forced to enter into complicated negotiations with major record labels and publishers to avoid litigation, while others have shut down when these issues became too much to handle. However, by employing APIs, startups can quickly and legally add full music catalogs, online radio, song suggestions, tour dates, bios, photos, lyrics, and more, leaving them time to focus on what really matters: innovation. Explore the top APIs currently available and show young companies how to sort through them.
