According to the press release we've recently dug up from the Grammy Foundation, Warner Music Group chairman and CEO Edgar Bronfman Jr. will deliver the keynote address at the 7th Annual Entertainment Law Initiative (ELI) Luncheon & Scholarship Presentation on Feb. 11, 2005, at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. The event begins at 11 a.m. and will feature live performances by special guest artists, in addition to the scholarship presentations.

Wonder if Bronfman will truthfully address all the problems plaguing the music industry...naw, we're dreaming. He'll likely blame illegal peer-to-peer downloading as the culprit..again.
