Black Music Congress Convenes 'Talking Copyright: What's All The Fuss?' Seminar In London
The prevalence of online activity has moved the subject of copyright from the lofty confines of academic and legal circles into the mainstream consciousness, so this seminar is an opportunity for panellists and participants to voice their opinions.
It’s a free seminar aimed at opening up the debate on Copyright among a wide constituency, which includes academics; legal eagles; creatives; legal, music and media lecturers and students; consumers; rights owners and users. It is not aimed exclusively at Africans or those in the music industry.
BBM/BMC believes that as recent digital and internet opportunities has increased our engagement with, and potential to infringe, copyright, the subject needs a discussion within a forum that positively allows for different viewpoints.
The panel consists of Kienda Hoji (University Of Westminster Commercial Music BA programme director), Saskia Walzel (Consumer Focus policy advocate), Dr Catherine M Lee (IP Kat contributor)
The seminar takes place Friday June 24 from 6.30pm at The Old Cinema in University Of Westminster’
