Westminster Law School are embarking on a new project, Lost in Music. The first stage of this project, 'Lost in Music - navigating the maze of copyright infringement', generously funded by the Quintin Hogg Trust, will launch on 3 October.
Lost in Music aims to offer a free, open access resource that helps artists, students, professionals and other interested parties navigate their way through the maze of music business law.
It offers a free-to-the-public information service for those with an interest in music copyright law, highlighting the latest cases as well as dissecting past examples and legal precedents in a down-to-earth, no-nonsense format. A wide range of stakeholders – from legal professionals and music industry figures to students – will benefit from this free resource and be able to take part in polls, votes and discussions within the project's website.
This launch evening will include an interactive presentation of the new website, alongside music examples and live performance illustrations from Simon Anderson, as well as a reception with drinks and nibbles.
