The agenda focuses on, but is not limited to, copyright issues. For example:
'Untapped Digital Income ? the impact on artists careers of p2p file-sharing,
upload sites, MP3 blogs and hard drive swapping.
'Giving away music for free ? can playing live and selling T-shirts really
'The protection of copyrights ? how can decisions by EU and UK politicians
affect artists music and future royalties?
'The prospects for emerging artists and composers ? the online opportunities
for established artists are significant but is the digital world equally
servicing emerging acts?'
I understand that no reporting press will be allowed in the event itself.
