Last week Monday (18 Sep) I got an opportunity to address interested ears on my passion i.e. music law. It was a more intimate environment where every 15min I’d address a new group of about 10 people (did this 5 times). It was great for me to be among so much talent. Quicket, What’s on in Cape Town and Drifters Brewery all did a phenomenal job in hosting this event. Be sure to be at the next one.
I am also proud to announce that as of last week, I am now a member of the Copyright Alliance, which is a group of industry specialists who formed to protect our copyright laws. The goal of the Copyright Alliance is to address issues raised in the new Copyright Bill and to ensure that author’s rights are properly protected, something the new Bill doesn’t seem to care about. Fortunately, those that are party of the Copyright Alliance are in an excellent position to give input as it comprises of members from all the fundamental music institutions in South Africa (i.e. SAMRO, CAPASSO, DALRO, RiSA, SAMPRA, MASA and MPA SA etc.)
