Music 4.5 The Politics of Licensing postponed until after the EU referendum
Due to the unknown impact of the upcoming EU referendum, we have decided to postpone the upcoming Music 4.5 The Politics of Licensing seminar on June 22. The rescheduled date is September 27, 2016.
The EU referendum will take place the day after our original date, and its outcome will affect EU policies on – among others – licensing and music business on all levels.
In short, the tone and content of the entire seminar is too dependent on the outcome of the referendum. Hence, we are re-scheduling the discussions for September, when all parties will be clearer as to what the reverberations of the referendum will be.
Companion seminars in London and New York
Here at 2Pears, we like to accentuate the positive. As the fallout of the EU referendum unfolds and we look to dissect all the issues related to it and the music industry, we will also be planning our New York seminar, Music 4.5 The Value Gap: YouTube, Competition and Licensing on 25 October. Both seminars will feed and benefit from more certainty regarding the EU circumstances and international licensing. We will bring to New York the very latest on licensing from this side of the pond, while our London seminar will be chock full of the latest developments and insights on licensing from our US cohorts.
If you are interested in getting involved in the discussions in London and New York, please get in touch with Rassami Hok Ljungberg, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please check back here for updates and news, as well as speaker interviews, analysis of licensing issues as the seminar and its new focus takes shape. For more information about Music 4.5 and our seminars, please go to our website.
