Release The Music: Today's the day!

Our Release The Music campaign is starting to get underway. Last Thursday, myself, ORG Chair Louise Ferguson, journalist Becky Hogge and lawyer Lubna Azhaar gathered at Portcullis House to give an briefing to MPs, peers and their staff. Due to Parliament being prorogued (temporarily suspended) prior to the Queen's Speech, attendance wasn't quite as good as we would have liked, but nevertheless we had a very useful session. Today we have our lunchtime briefing for journalists, and our public event at Conway Hall at 6pm tonight. I've closed registration, but if you want to come, please just show up as we've a few spare spaces. Although all our work over the last month or two has been focused on today, really, this event is only the start. We'll continue to expand the website, adding more information and content up there. And we're already in talks about another couple of events that we might be able to pull together with some very interesting partners. I'm very excited about tonight, but I'm even more excited that soon I'll be able to start thinking about the next step in our campaign. Meantime, if you agree that the term of copyright protection given to sound recordings should remain at 50 years, please sign our petition.
