It's been nearly a decade since the digital music genie burst out of its bottle, changing the game for virtually everyone in the music ecosystem. Future of Music Policy Summit 2009 features practical, musician-focused workshops, keynotes from leading artists, managers and policymakers and inspired panel discussions with the sharpest minds in the music/technology/policy space.
Among the ranks of stellar speakers and panelists are:
U.S. Senator Al Franken (D-MN), who will speak about net neutrality.
Daniel Ek, founder of Spotify -- the potentially game-changing music service that's sweeping Europe and generating incredible buzz in America, where the service is expected to launch this year.
Brian Message -- a partner in Courtyard Management, the team that represents Radiohead, Supergrass and the 22-20s.
Throughout the Summit, prominent musicians from a variety of genres will also give their direct thoughts about how they're adapting to an increasingly networked (and noisy) world. Artist participants in Policy Summit 2009 include jazz pianist Vijay Iyer, Wayne Kramer of MC5, Dave Allen of Gang of Four and Mac McCaughan, co-owner of Merge Records and member of Superchunk and Portastatic.
