News: ICMP partnership with Future Copyright

"The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance is delighted to announce a partnership with Future Copyright, a leading and innovative web-based provider of secure copyright solutions for musicians and creative artists.

This partnership is designed to support Institute students and alumni with services designed and developed for protecting copyright of intellectual property - essential for any creative musician! The Institute’s Operations Director Pete Whittard said on the partnership: “This link up with Future Copyright will really enhance the education programme that we have at the Institute. Future Copyright is a great product and their team and their existing legal and educational partners will offer great support to our staff and students.”
Future Copyright director Darryl Sherborne said, “This is a great link up for Future Copyright. The Institute’s brand and ethos really fits with Future Copyright. Our users include a large number of music producers, musicians and song writers; and our focus on educating new artists can be delivered with the support of the Institute. With the world of media copyright changing with the UK Government’s announcement to implement the Hargreaves Review recommendations, it’s important for colleges like the Institute to bring the latest educational material to their students so they are equipped to enter the modern media industry.”
Amongst the many benefits that this will bring to Institute students are:

  • Special lecturing events covering the ‘truths and myths of copyright protection’
  • Sponsorship of selected Institute awards and events
  • Full-time Institute students will be offered a free Future Copyright account with free start-up credits
