Who Will Make the Rules? Music Industry Faces Off at DC Conference
In what shapes up as an exhibition game for the Big League contests to come, music and movie industry lobbyists, artist representatives, a government official, and a reporter faced off in a debate on the future of digital entertainment. The outlook: threats, litigation, appeals, and (eventually) hearings before the Supreme Court. Most of the panelists who took part in this forum will no doubt be making their cases before Congress, the courts, and the media over the next several months and years.
