Eurosonic/ Noorderslag Festival


Dear IAEL Members,

 We are delighted to announce that the IAEL will host a legal panel at the Eurosonic/ Noorderslag Festival in Groningen - http://www.eurosonic-noorderslag.nl/nl/webshop/festival/ which will take place on January 15, 2016.

 The legal panel will include Hein Fokker, who is active as a content and clearance consultant for Dutch Public Broadcasting and Mojo Concerts, as well as Pinkpop Festival, Lowlands Festival, North Sea Jazz Festival and Eurosonic/Noorderslag. Hein will take a look at clearance of rights regarding streaming/ broadcasting of live performances from a practical point of view after which our lawyers will comment from a legal perspective. Other topics, for instance secondary ticketing and collecting society tarrifs are likely to be discussed. The legal speakers will include the IAEL members Prof Jens Michow, Marcel Bunders, Peter Marx and Ann Harrison (of SwanTurton), as well as Willem Roos.

The Legal IAEL Panel will be held next Friday at 4:30pm in De Oosterpoort in Groningen. http://www.eurosonic-noorderslag.nl/nl/conference/panels/panel/the-legal-panel/
