I will be speaking on copyright royalty rate litigation at NARM’s Entertainment & Technology Law Conference this week, discussing the intricacies of litigating before the Copyright Royalty Board and the ASCAP and BMI rate courts. For those interested in rate-setting litigation, it should be an excellent panel, with Jonathan Potter moderating. Ken Steinthal and I will be speaking from the music service / licensee perspective, and Lucy Holmes Plovnick speaking from the copyright owner perspective.
There will also be other interesting panels, covering copyright, trademark/domain name and right of publicity issues of topical interest. The conference will be held this Thursday, February 28, 2013, from 1:00 to 5:30 pm.
