I just got word about this conference on "Music, Technology and IP Policy", which will address recent developments in media structure and public policy as they effect musicians and other artists. Sponsored by the Future of Music Coalition and the American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, the all-day event will take place on Wednesday, May 2, at Center for American Progress, 1333 H Street NW, Washington, DC. The conference will examine such hot button issues as:
- EMI’s no-DRM experiment
- The proposed XM/Sirius Satellite Radio
- Section 115 Copyright Reform and Music
- Internet Radio and the new Webcasting Rates
- Network Neutrality and Media Ownership
Sounds like an outstanding program. Only $25, but seats are limited to register now.

>>Internet Radio and the new Webcasting Rates
This has major implications for musicians/dj’s in the emerging metaverse, sl being the first cab off the rank.
The impracticality of current law and technological use can be shown by IFPI announces a “global” webcasting license
“But there’s still a catch: the fee structure wont change and each webcaster would still have to pay licensing fees for the music to each individual country they wish to stream to (again, in theory — in real life, to all countries where they have an actual physical presence), based on that country’s licensing body’s fee structure.”
Yeah, right, lets make it easy for everyone!
