International Association of Entertainment Lawyers to Host Annual Legal Summit at ADE

We are looking forward to our International Conference in Berlin on October 14-16, 2023.  We also are coordinating with the International Association of Entertainment Lawyers (the “IAEL”) which will host its annual IAEL Legal Summit at ADE in Amsterdam a few days later October 19-20.

Jeff Liebenson, our longtime Copyright Society member, is President of the IAEL which is comprised of top entertainment lawyers around the world. The IAEL’s Legal Summit program this year will feature a MasterClass on AI in the Entertainment Industry, a Legal Update on emerging legal developments in the key markets around the world, and a panel discussion of their annual IAEL book on licensing rights in the new digital economies, which will be released at the Legal Summit.

ADE is the pre-eminent annual music festival for the electronic music industry. It presents numerous music events throughout Amsterdam and attracted a record 450,000 visitors last year. ADE’s Pro Conference presents a variety of programs including the IAEL Legal Summit which are attended by record labels, music publishers and other industry professionals.

In that the IAEL event in Amsterdam is a few days after our International Conference in Berlin, we thought many Copyright Society members may wish to attend both events while they are in Europe.

The IAEL Legal Summit is complimentary for ADE Pro Pass registrants who may attend the full Pro Conference as well as the music festival. ADE Pro Pass registration is available for 570 euros at: https://www.amsterdam-dance-event.nl/en/tickets/.

IAEL members receive a discounted ADE registration rate of 450 euros, a complimentary copy of the IAEL’s new annual book, complimentary members-only dinners including an IAEL welcome dinner on October 18, and an IAEL boat cruise while in Amsterdam. IAEL members also receive discounts and participate in many other conferences throughout the world.  IAEL annual membership for 325 euros is available at: https://www.iael.org/join.

We hope many of you will enjoy both our International Conference in Berlin and the IAEL Legal Summit in Amsterdam.
