On Wednesday, Dec. 16, Future of Music Coalition will participate in a FREEEducause Live! webinar about — what else? — music, technology and policy.
FMC Education Director Kristin Thomson and Policy Director Michael Bracy will take part in a session called “Music 2.0: Revenue Streams, Consumer Behavior and Policy Issues.” Here’s the official description:
Thanks to the Internet, there are now a mind-boggling array of tools and services that help musicians and record labels promote, distribute, and sell their music. And as this legal marketplace for music matures, consumer behavior is shifting away from ownership of music (legal or illegally acquired) toward on-demand access to music. This presentation will start with a virtual tour of a small array of licensed music services and include a discussion of the policy positions that would optimize the growth of a legitimate digital marketplace for music, one that would ensure artist compensation while also promoting legal music discovery and consumption.
Sounds pretty cool, huh? And you can’t beat the price. Head to the Educause site to pre-register for the event.
