Even if you’ve learned the basics of U.S. copyright law, once you delve into music copyrights, you discover an even more complex system is operating behind the scenes of today's music industry. With the advent of digital streaming and the decline of physical CDs, who benefits? Who's left out? And what policy changes are needed?

Join us for an educational briefing and breakfast, where our panel of experts will explain the current state of music policy and identify solutions on the margin to promote a more transparent, balanced, and competitive ecosystem for music to flourish.

Breakfast from Chick-fil-a will be served.
