Clock is Ticking on FMC's NYC Events!

FMC Policy Director Michael Bracy at"What's the Future for Musician?" Chicago

There's only three days until our final two fall events, both of which take place at the Public Theater in New York City on Monday, October 6. Online registration closes at 11:59 PM this Saturday, Oct. 4, but we'll also be taking on-site walk-up registration as space allows. Slots are filling up really quickly, so reserve your spot now!

We're really excited to be bringing our "What's the Future for Musicians?" seminar to the Big Apple. This info-packed event offers musicians, indie labels and fans up-to-the minute info about internet-based promotion and distribution options, how to navigate the health insurance landscape, the importance of open internet structures and how copyright law and business models affect musician compensation. Breakout sessions will cover such topical subjects as new revenue streams for musicians, podcasting and webcasting, international touring and New York funding opportunities for artists. It's a great way to get the latest music-tech-policy scoop, interact with the experts and network. Did we mention there's a post-event cocktail party? That's how the pros network!

Immediately following the musician education seminar at The Public is "Creative License: A Conversation About Music, Sampling and Fair Use," which kicks off at 6PM with a cocktail party (the discussion begins at 7PM).

As part of a multi-part discussion series, FMC and media professor Kembrew McLeod (University of Iowa) will examine this issue in-depth.

Joining FMC and McLeod are experts from all sides of the debate, including producer EL-P of Def Jux Records, musician T.S. Monk, June Besek, Executive Director of the Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts at Columbia Law School, and Peter Jaszi, Professor of Law and Intellectual Property at American University.

Attorneys attending this event can earn 1.5 professional practice credits. Attendees of the earlier event who do not need CLE credits will be able to attend "Creative License" free of charge.
