Future of Music Coalition has just added several new names to its upcoming D.C. Policy Day at National Geographic Music and Radio and National Geographic Live! on February 11, 2009. The event offers an up-close look at how changes in the policymaking landscape could impact the music community, from artists and entrepreneurs to advocates and fans.

With its impressive array of thought-leaders and experts, Policy Day 2009 will examine how media and broadband policy affect music discovery and acquisition, and how changes in copyright law could impact creator and tech communities. Topics of conversation include broadband and internet policy, copyright and compensation, radio issues and new business models. These discussions will help establish an agenda for music, technology and law at the start of a new federal administration.
