Don’t forget to attend the Music Law Showcase and Conference this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 20 & 21.

The Feb. 20 band showcase offers an exciting slate of live performances by young, up-and-coming, local bands — including Bang Bang Boom, The Duppies, SuperFish, and Vernon — from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. at Common Grounds, located at 210 S.W. 2nd Ave. in downtown Gainesville.

Conference sessions will begin at 9 a.m. on Feb. 21 in the Chesterfield Smith Ceremonial Classroom (180 HOL) on the UF College of Law campus. Legal and music-industry experts will discuss topics ranging from licensing and copyrights to management and musician’s rights. A new addition, the breakout session, will give the attendees a chance to get into small groups with one of the panelists for either a Q&A or a workshop. Notable confirmed panelists include Gary Roth, assistant vice president of Legal Affairs for BMI records, and Ravi, a musician and advocate for artistic integrity.

Keynote speaker Martin Atkins, an author and record label owner who has toured with Public Image Ltd., Killing Joke, Ministry and Nine Inch Nails, said he is looking forward to the exchange of ideas he anticipates will happen at the conference.

“It’s been my experience that ideas circulated amongst any group of interested people create more ideas,” said Atkins. “I like the games of mental ping-pong that happen with any gathering of switched-on, open-brained people.”

The conference is free to UF faculty and students. Registration for non-UF students and faculty is $20. Registration for attorneys is $75, which includes seven Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits.
