The Future of Music Policy Summit is coming to Montreal October 5-7, 2006. Now in its 6th year, the organisers claim that:
the Future of Music Policy Summit promises to bring together a spectacular international mixture of technologists, attorneys, musicians, managers and industry leaders for discussions about the issues that are emerging as music distribution moves to a global, digital platform.
Over the course of three days, we’ll be exploring such issues as international copyright reform, digital music licensing, DRM/interoperability, the effect of government funding on artists’ careers, how orchestras are navigating change, and the Quebecois music industry.
