A question and answer session about music copyright with expert advice from John Robb, writer and Goldblade frontman. Joining John is Nigel Gardner, music specialist and director at Cobbetts plus Ged Noonan, patent librarian at Leeds City Libraries and Matt Wheelton from the band Zap Zap Zap.
This was a free event hosted by Manchester Libraries at City Library, Manchester on August 25 2010.
This is quite a long video because the panel offered so much useful information and advice for young bands and songwriters we didn't want to leave any out!
A trip down through Manchester Central Library’s stack system. Beneath the Great Hall, at the heart of the library, are four levels of library stacks (storage areas). Made of steel, they directly support the reinforced concrete floors of the building and drive down into the sandstone bedrock. They contain approximately 22 miles of shelving and were designed to provide storage space for up to one million books. The stacks contain some of the oldest and most precious treasures of the library, kept in special secure areas and an underground environment-controlled archive store.
