Erik Steigen, CEO of USA Media Rights, participated as a speaker at the Digital Entertainment World Expo 2018 in Marina Del Rey, California on February 5, 2018. The topic was "THE EARNING REVOLUTION: DISRUPTING ROYALTIES IN MUSIC AND ENTERTAINMENT."

The panelists, in addition to Erik Steigen, were Tyron Bennion, SVP of Global Sales, Hyperwallet, and Matt Burns, Co-Founder and General Counsel, INGrooves. The panel was moderated by Matt Coleman, CEO of Magnify World, who stepped up in Ted Cohen's absence at a moment's notice.

The panel discussion focused on what's broken in the distribution of royalties, how to retain artists in the gig economy, and issues with incomplete and erroneous data.
