For British Black Music Month (BBMM) 2019, and as a precursor to International Reggae Day UK on June 30 (Goldsmith’s) and July 1 (Brent), we take yet another departure from the usual Talking Copyright (TC) format – this year’s TC will incorporate presentations, with a British reggae playlist opening and a DJ set closing the seminar.

Following on from the ‘One Love’ celebrations last November of reggae music being added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity List, this seminar explores what the much trumpeted ‘protection’ means from a legal perspective. What does it mean in relation to copyright specifically, and generally within the broader IP (Intellectual Property) framework?

Presenters: Kwaku (LLM Entertainment Law), Dr Enrico Bonadio (City University Of London Law School), Dr Marcus Goffe (via video, Jamaican Intellectual Property Office).

Organised by BritishBlackMusic.com/Black Music Congress in association with City, University Of London Law School.

Talking Copyright UNESCO Reggae Protection

This is a special opportunity to really interrogate what the honour given to reggae means, from the legal and cultural perspectives, to what extent does it provide ‘protection’, and the potential ways in which it can be used to benefit reggae and Jamaica.

The evening will start with a British reggae playlist selected by Kwaku BMM and end with a short reggae set by DJ Enrico Bonadio.

To be kept in the loop of BBMM2019, including International Reggae Day on June 30/July 1: www.BBM.eventbrite.com.
