CCC Panel Explores Legal Developments in the Music Industry
Legal issues affecting every musician, songwriter, manager and music business attorney will be discussed September 14 at the California Copyright Conference in Los Angeles.
[USPRwire, Wed Sep 01 2010] New changes in music business laws will affect every musician, songwriter, manager, and music attorney, which is why the California Copyright Conference is opening its 2010-2011 season with a presentation entitled "Legal Eagles: Legal Developments Affecting the Music Industry." Taking place the evening of September 14 in Los Angeles, the event is open to the public.
The Legal Eagles panel will be moderated by CCC Board Member Kenneth D. Freundlich (of Freundlich Law) and former CCC President Michael Morris (of Valensi Rose, PLC).
"We have seen another year where certain key decisions and trends in the law have affected the shape of the landscape in the music industry," Freundlich notes. "Among them are the growth of 360 deals and changes in music licensing."
There will be give-and-take in the panel discussions, as seen in Morris' follow-up to Freundlich's statement: "In the continuing evolution of 360 deals, 'growth' implies positive developments, which isn't exactly the case as to recording agreements," Morris states.
Joining Freundlich and Morris on the panel will be:
* Milton Olin, Altschul & Olin, LLP
* Ronald Gertz, Music Reports, Inc.
* Dina La Polt, La Polt law
* Laurie Soriano, Davis, Shapiro, Lewit & Hayes, LLP
"We are looking forward to hearing how this distinguished panel will discuss many key legal decisions and trends affecting the music industry," states CCC President Shawn LeMone (of ASCAP). "With this group of speakers, there will be a wealth of information and the opinions are certain to be exciting to hear," LeMone added.
