CMA/NARM Plan Entertainment Law Conference

Marybeth Peters

The CMA is working with NARM to host an Entertainment Law Conference in Nashville on Tuesday, Nov. 9 (1:00-5:30 PM/CT) at the Hutton Hotel. The half-day continuing legal education course is part of a series put on by NARM and will be part of scheduled events leading up to “The 44th Annual CMA Awards,” which will be held the following night (10/10) at the Bridgestone Arena.

A highlight of the conference will be an interview with the Honorable Marybeth Peters. In one of the final public events of her 16-year tenure as United States Register of Copyrights, she will discuss some of the remarkable events of her career in the Copyright Office, the twists and turns in U.S. and global copyright law and policy, and her ideas about the future of copyright law.

The program will also feature an impressive line-up of top-level speakers from the music and media business and legal professions. Panels will address the likely impact of the 2010 elections on music, media, and copyright legislation; copyright termination; and recent judicial interpretations of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act; and more.

A cocktail reception to honor Peters will follow the program and allow registrants to meet the speakers.

Registration for the event through Oct. 1 is $149 for NARM and CMA members, $199 for non-members, and $69 for students. On Oct. 2, registration rates increase by $50 for members and non-members and $30 for students. You may register here.

Application for accreditation of this course or program in Tennessee is pending. Once approved, the course will yield four credits.
