MusicBiz competition to fight copyright crime

24 October 2013

The Intellectual Property Office (IPO) has recently launched 'MusicBiz', a competition aimed at helping 14-18 year olds better understand how artists, songwriters and bands are rewarded for their creativity.

The competition is open to individuals as well as schools and colleges. Entrants are invited to create either a short film or a storyboard on how they think the music industry operates, and how musicians make a living. The competition winners will win concert tickets, music download vouchers and unique music industry experiences. Schools and colleges could also win specialist software.

It is hoped that MusicBiz will heighten the awareness of copyright, piracy and intellectual property issues amongst young people. Minister for Intellectual Property, Lord Younger, said: 'The internet has revolutionised the way that we all get, listen to and store music. However, with these changes we have experienced, unfortunately, increasing amount of piracy and copyright infringement. One of the ways we can help tackle this is through educating people as to how the music industry operates. Through the MusicBiz competition we hope to show them the importance of both the value and protection of copyright and creativity for our world-class creative industries.'

Jo Dipple, chief executive of UK Music, said that she hopes MusicBiz will appeal both to teachers and students, and encourage open conversation in the classroom on the topic of intellectual property issues.

MusicBiz is part of the IPO's education campgain 'Treasure Island', which is aims to engage young people in intellectual property issues in a creative way. For more details on how to enter the competition, visit the MusicBiz website
