[tomorrow] Watch the Future of Music Coalition's annual summit live-streamed

The Future of Music Coalition is a national non-profit music advocacy organization working for the sustainable future of music culture and creative communities. Within this context, each autumn, FMC hosts an annual summit discussing technology, law, and policy as it relates to the music world. Unlike "music industry conferences" like SXSW and CMJ, this summit is refreshingly unfocused on creating more profitable music industry business models -- and instead is focused on conversations about keeping music as a medium that is open and accessible to all.

The 2012 FMC summit takes place tomorrow in DC, with each session live-streamed online. This year's sessions range from a discussion of "IP Enforcement & Internet Openness" to a reflection on "Why Pussy Riot Matters" to a conversation about the election results and cultural policy. The day ends with a discussion on art and activism with Merrill Garbus (a/k/a tUnE-yArDs), Thao Nguyen, Chris Walla and Jordan Kurland. Check out the entire schedule below and visit the FMC website for more details on topics the discussions will cover.
