DC Policy Day 2009!

Join us in Washington, DC on Wednesday, February 11, 2009 for FMC's second DC Policy Day. Scheduled just two weeks after the inauguration, this day-long event will bring a laser-beam focus on how media and broadband policy affect the music industry, and how changes in copyright law could impact music and technology communities. Panelists and speakers will represent leading stakeholders in the music/tech policy space, with a particular emphasis on individuals who are central to setting the agenda in 2009 and beyond.
