The University of Glasgow is hosting a free interactive Zoom event, titled “Who’s Zoomin Who? Music, Copyright and Precarity”, on 12 November 2020. The event is supported by funding from the Being Human festival and the Economic and Social Research Council‘s Festival of Social Science.

IPAN Membership Officer Janet Burgess is involved in organising the event, a description of which is copied below:

“If you’ve ever wondered how music is created, where copyright fits in, and the impact that Covid-19 has had on musicians and the music industry, this event is for you.

Part gig, part debate, this session brings together music and legal scholars, musicians and policy makers to tell the story of a song – from composition and collaboration through to recording and live performance. In doing so, it explores how copyright supports the industry and its musicians, and the impact of lockdown on a sector already characterised by precariousness and uncertainty, which compelled many musicians to start using online platforms as their only means of making music.

Join us to share your questions, views and experiences as we discuss music, copyright and precarity in this new creative world”

The event will feature Simon Anderson (PRS for Music), Matt Brennan (aka Citizen Bravo), Kathryn Cooper (University of Glasgow Director of Chapel Music), Carla Easton, and Mathias Korn from The Burning Hell.
