How copyright works in 2022

    • - BST

Please join us for an in-person copyright seminar and drinks reception on Wednesday 8 June.

Kevin Brennan MP will be our headline speaker, to provide his insights on next steps following the DCMS Committee's inquiry into music streaming, his Private Members' Bill and the CMA's market study.

We'll also cover the latest copyright updates from the UK and we'll be joined by colleagues from across the EU to update us on the practical impact of the DSM Copyright Directive, one year after its implementation deadline. 

Following the seminar we will have a drinks reception on our terrace with music from Chisara Agor, a Resident Artist at The Roundhouse. 

We hope you can make it.
