"UK Music calls for easier digital licensing, less red tape on smaller music venues, and wants a cabinet-level committee to coordinate policy."
Therefore, they would get to influence government directly, at a time when our votes barely count.

The intellectual copyright bunch were responsible for giving us the secret ACTA treaty, which spawned the egregious Digital Economy Bill, which allows Mandelson's buddies to curtail your internet connection on the suspicion that you're up to no good.

Now's the time to put worry beads on your MP's forehead. Don't wait until the deal is done. Once the lobbyists have a toe in the door, it's a devil of a job to get rid of them!
