Thomas Jefferson School of Law Professor K.J. Greene will speak at San Diego Music Thing, San Diego Music Foundation’s 6th annual Music & Media Conference and Festival on Saturday, September 13th. The festival, held at various venues from September 11th to September 13th, aims to promote a diverse and creative music community among children and emerging professionals and will cover the many facets of the music industry.
Panels and workshops will cover topics including marketing, business, and the law. Professor Greene, nationally known as the first legal scholar to examine African-American art forms under intellectual property, will participate in the panel titled “Lawyers, Guns and Money.” Afterword the “One-On-One Music and Media Law Clinic” will allow panelists to mentor attendees and discuss in-depth questions about entertainment law.
Live music performances in the afternoons and into the evenings will display over 100 different bands. Featured speakers include rock and soul music artist Swampp Dogg, rock musician Jack Grisham and singer-songwriter Moby. In accord with The San Diego Foundation’s 23-year commitment to young people, proceeds from the festival will go to making music accessible to children through the Foundation’s experimental music program across San Diego County.
