"Music and Intellectual Property": a conference and a competition

Well, someone's got
something to sing about ...
"Music and Intellectual Property" is the title of a one-day conference which CLT Conferences is running on 8 December in Central London. Subtitled "Identifying, Protecting and Enforcing Rights in Music", the programme features a double input from the 1709 Blog: Ben Challis (General Counsel, Glastonbury Festivals Ltd) speaks on "The Glastonbury Tales: the Practicalities of Festival Life and IP", while Jeremy Phillips takes the chair for the day. There are some other excellent speakers too, and the day promises to scintillate.  You can see the full programme here.

There's a competition running along with this conference, the prize being complimentary admission -- and the fabled free lunch. It goes like this. Shakespeare's play Twelfth Night opens with Duke Orsino saying
"If music be the food of love, play on,
Give me excess of it".
Your task is to complete the following sentence:
"If music be the food of love, then copyright is ..."
Closing date for entries is 17 November. Competition entries should be emailed to Jeremy at the 1709 Blog with the subject line "Food of love".
