6th Annual Future of Music Policy Summit

October 5-7, 2006
McGill University's Schulich School of Music, Montreal, Canada
in conjunction with Pop Montreal

Top names in music, technology, law, academia and policy will convene in Montreal, Canada from October 5-7, 2006 to discuss crucial issues facing musicians and the music industry. Presented in partnership with McGill University's Schulich School of Music and Pop Montreal, the Policy Summit will provide musicians, students, attorneys, advocates and policymakers with opportunity to examine the critical issues facing the international music community through a robust debate.

By convening this Summit in Montreal, Canada, FMC will broaden the scope of its annual educational program to address the variety of issues that are affecting musicians and music communities in the US, Canada, and worldwide as production, promotion and sales increasingly moves to a global digital platform. The Policy Summit will be held in conjunction with the fifth annual Pop Montreal International Music Festival (October 4-8, 2006), a five day festival of independent music, film, art, and ideas.

FMC has convened and hosted five Policy Summits in Washington, DC since 2000, each bringing hundreds of musicians, policymakers, advocates, attorneys, and technologists together for engaging discussions about emerging music/technology issues.
