FUTURE OF MUSIC COALITION POLICY DAY APRIL 12
On Tuesday, April 12 join FMC in Washington for a DC Policy Day. This will be like a one-day version of our Policy Summit, but with a laser-beam focus on four issues that are emerging in the Courts, Congress and at the Copyright Office. By bringing together key stakeholders – musicians, advocates, policymakers, technologists, academics – we will once again generate a meaningful, well-balanced discussion on the issues that will impact musicians and the music community in 2005 and beyond.
