Music industry debate in London

(via Lilian Edwards)

Musicians, fans and online copyright
2pm, 19 March, Old Theatre, London School of Economics

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 at this FREE event 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).

Registration here.

I Just checked the LSE web site and there is no mention of this public event, do you know what lecture theatre or room that this is in

Andres, I have been checking this out on the lse web site This event is not listed, which is strange as LSE is well organised on this front.

I'm a graduate of LSE and still go to a lot of public lectures, it's unusual for the Old theatre to be used during the day as it's normally used for student lectures, public lectures normally start at 6:30 (it's possible that this is not a public lecture, it might be an event arranged for students by one of the departments).

Sounds really interesting so I hope it does happen.

ps. Term ends 14th March so there will be no students around which would explain the time of 2pm.
