The MIDEM 2011 conference concluded today, and as usual, it was overflowing with news, products, parties and opinions. Obviously no one can catch all of the action but Billboard.biz's team certainly lost a lot of sleep trying: Check out all of our coverage (in rough chronological order) below, from this year's top startups to a report on hack day, from Vivendi's Jean Bernard Levy's call for crackdowns on piracy to young guns' claims that the industry doesn't support young artists, candid commentary from Tom Silverman and Ultra Music's Patrick Moxey, a look at the generational clash between the old and new music businesses at the conference, and a great guest post on the same theme from Songkick's Ian Hogarth. See you next year!
