Thanks for posting this. I agree very strongly that many of these "behind the scenes" activities lack the thrill and excitement of creating music, but they're definitely crucial if one wants to keep up in this constantly changing business...

Fascinating document- I agree that standardization of metadata is important, but I'd also mention that it can be very fun! At least in the world of librarianship, technologies like linked data/RDF, concepts like authority control and FRBR, and increasingly open data resources from the likes of Library of Congress and others show that metadata management is now more than ever a fascinating field with plenty of opportunities to roll up your sleeves and change how people think about information discovery and access. I think the music business and library communities have alot to offer and teach each other about metadata. If you think music metadata is boring, talk to a librarian and you might change your mind!

Music tagging and metadata is very important in the production music industry. My company and trained team of analysts have been offering a tagging service to licensing companies and independent artists since 2010.
