The message from Congress on Copyright:
“When it comes to legislation, the issues are too important and the opposition too powerful for you to win as a divided community… If the entertainment industry ( and others ) are not united you will not be well represented or able to participate adequately in the discussions going on in the halls of Congress….. These discussions are going to happen with or without you.”
Congressman Jerrold Nadler at a music industry luncheon in Los Angeles, the day before the 2015 Grammy Awards.
Safe Harbor Summit
Washington D.C. January 2018
In today’s digital economy copyright holders are under siege from online piracy, technology start-ups and distribution agreements that place them at a financial disadvantage. Copyright Holders need their own conference to discuss the challenges they face and explore ways they can work together to improve the current situation.
The opposing forces are powerful and unless copyright holders come together in significant numbers and speak out in support of their rights and economic equality, special interest groups representing the opposition will prevail.
The goal of the Safe Harbor Summit is to build consensus and create solidarity that can support legislative reform and demonstrate to the public and elected officials the widespread support that exists within the creative community for copyright reform and economic equality.
This Conference will focus exclusively on Safe Harbor Reform and those who represent their interests with the understanding that unless copyright holders come together in agreement on pending legislation, special interest groups representing the internet and digital distribution will destroy what remains of a copyright holders ability to earn living on the internet.
