Dear Wonderful People of AoIR,

I'm forwarding the info below on behalf of a contact at the Future of Music Coalition...

Thought it might be of interest to those of you who are teaching classes this semester about music, tech + copyright.

Happy weekend to all,



The nonprofit Future of Music Coalition is currently hosting a set of four online Music and Money quizzes<http://futureofmusic.org/music-and-money-quizzes> that use real-world music business scenarios to test musicians' knowledge of the copyright laws and licensing arrangements that shape the current music landscape.

Educators who teach music industry, music performance, copyright law, entertainment law or media policy are invited to use these quizzes as a teaching tool.  Educators could use the quizzes to gather baseline information from incoming students, or use a particular question as an introduction/hook to a lecture, or specific questions could be packaged together to address a particular topic.

FMC would be happy to work with educators to install a simple 5-digit code to group findings by school/class, or re-organize questions to meet your needs.  Contact Kristin Thomson kristin at futureofmusic.org<mailto:kristin at futureofmusic.org>

Quizzes are online here:

This blog post reports the quiz responses after 30 days in the field:
