I am delighted to announce that James Murdoch, Chairman and Chief Executive of News Corporation, Europe and Asia, has agreed to give the opening address at our Autumn Event on the evening of 8 November. This is fantastic news and will dramatically raise the profile of the event. The topic for debate is 'Copyright in the Digital Age - Industry Issues and Impacts' and the discussion will focus around our online report on the future of Copyright. In addition to James Murdoch, we have a number of distinguished panellists including Sarah Thomas, Librarian of the Bodleian Library in Oxford.
I would like to thank Ian Locks, who has put an enormous amount of effort into organising this event, the Copyright Report and its related website (click here for a link), and the Master who secured James Murdoch as a speaker.
As this event is now certain to be very popular, I strongly encourage you to book tickets for it as early as possible. You should all have a flyer for it in your recent bulk mailing and an updated flyer, with the inclusion of James Murdoch, will soon be available to download from the Events section of the website where you can also book and pay for your tickets.
Please come if you can; it will be a great event!
