Musicians, fans and online copyright

Given the plans to make ISPs monitor their networks for copyright infringement and cut off suspected transgressors here's a timely event, organised by Ian Brown from the OII, which I would very much recommend.
Musicians, fans and online copyright

Wednesday, March 19, 2008 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Old Theatre, London School of Economics
Houghton Street
London, WC2A 2AE

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 (CEO of PlayLouder), Becky Hogge (Open Rights Group), Lilian Edwards (Southampton University), Rufus Pollock (Cambridge University) and Michelle Childs (Knowledge Ecology International).
