The Music Network is open to all on Thursday 28th September 2010 The Meeting will be lead this month by Andy Derrick and Mark Badger from 4pm til 6pm at Millennium Point, Curzon Street, Birmingham, B4 7XG
The Music Network organises a NETWORKING EVENT on the last Thursday of each month, for the benefit of music related businesses in the West Midlands region. If you have any involvement in music, come and talk about what you’re up to and meet some new people. These Networking events are about all things music in the region. They’re about helping you to teach yourself how to do it, by yourself, for yourself and encourages you to share the knowledge with others so they can do the same. If you are a musician, a student, someone who works with musicians, represents musicians, has involvement with the music industry, or are looking to make new contacts…..the meeting will be useful.
Here is something that raises some interesting issues, what do you make of it all?
Why #quitmyspace day is pointless

Andrew Dubber, a lecturer in Birmingham and speaker on issues connected with the music industry has decided he really doesn’t like myspace.
His argument includes opinion that the interface and public side of the pages aren’t very nice (I agree) although he is fairly quiet on the grey issue of rights for music uploaded to the site.
However the arrogance that he thinks he has the influence to exact a massive blow to this huge site is ridiculous.
Your comments please…..
