David speaking about Copyright Advocacy for Musicians
Professional musicians – whether they’re performers, composers, or both – rely on strong copyright protections for their careers. But copyright law has been under assault, primarily by the internet industry, for several years.
Copyright advocate, blogger, and consultant David Newhoff will discuss the current state of the “copyright law,” addressing some of the key players, the major issues to watch, and which advocates to follow.
In this workshop, he will cover specifically:
* Background on the “copyright law.”
* The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) and prospects for reform.
* Key principles for 21st century copyright law.
* The US Copyright Office (USCO)
* People to watch, sources to read.
