Artists are becoming increasingly reliant on sponsorships and relationships with corporate clients to make a living, but sometimes the ideas they express in their music are at odds with the values their business partners espouse. Even though lyrics often come from the perspective of a fictional character or a cultivated persona, there are instances when these blurred lines have caused real world problems for both sides.

The panelists discuss the potential percussions that artists should be aware of when making music if they are working with corporate clients.
