Two 'Talking Copyright' sessions at Brtish Black Music Month
Talking Copyright Conference: From A Left & Global South Perspective July 13, 6-8pm @ Houses Of Parliament. www.bit.ly
This conference aims to highlight perspectives that go beyond the concept of Copyright being a Eurocentric construct very much predicated on the creation by the romantic solitary author and providing a monopoly for his and his agents' financial recompense. A panel hosted by Anne McLaughlin MP at the Houses Of Parliament and chaired by Kwaku (convenor), consisting of Dr Enrico Bonadio (senior law lecturer and reggaephile), Awula Serwah (barrister and community activist) - more to be confirmed, will explore Copyright and related conventions and how it works in relation to African/black music, African culture and artefacts from a global South and left focus.
