World Copyright Summit
SESAC Takes Part In World Copyright Summit
SESAC was front and center when CISAC (International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers) kicked off their World Copyright Summit: New Frontiers for Creators in the Marketplace in the nation’s capital. The two-day gathering is the only international forum that brings together creators, rights organizations and guilds, content service providers, broadcasters, telecommunications operators, hardware manufacturers, legal experts and policymakers to debate the future of copyright and the distribution of creative works in the digital era. SESAC took part in a special “Cocktails & Jazz On The Mall” concert featuring SESAC affiliate Stefon Harris.
