On April 21, Harvard Law School will host one of the first academic symposia to analyze the fluctuating landscape of the music industry due to the growth of the Internet and online entertainment. The event, titled “All Shook Up: The Music Industry Confronts the Internet and Consolidation,” will feature some of the most prominent executives in the online entertainment industry including Nicholas Butterworth, CEO of MTVi; Matt Oppenheim, head of anti-piracy litigation for the Recording Industry Artists Association; and Manus Cooney, Vice President for Corporate and Policy Development at Napster.

Panels will address recent mergers, antitrust issues, online and offline consolidation, and the artists’ role in the fast-changing music landscape. The event, which is open to the public, will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Langdell South classroom. There is a $50 registration for the symposium, but it is free for all students and Harvard Affiliates with valid identification.
