Musicians, fans and online copyright

Next month the issues discussed in the previous post will be treated in the conference/debate/meeting on Musicians, fans and online copyright on Wednesday, March 19, 2008, 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm at the Old Theatre of the London School of Economics. Ian's email says:

Is home downloading killing music? Should Internet Service Providers monitor customers to try and spot copyright infringement, and disconnect downloaders? Do musicians need new laws to benefit from the opportunities of the Internet?

Join us to debate these questions and more with leading copyright thinkers from the music world, government, consumer groups and universities. Confirmed speakers include John Kennedy (CEO of IFPI), Paul Sanders (Director of Strategy at Playlouder), Becky Hogge (Open Rights Group), Lilian Edwards (Southampton University), Rufus Pollock (Cambridge University) and Michelle Childs (Knowledge Ecology International).

So, see you in LSE!
