This is the homepage for the London Alternative Copyright Choir.



The London Alternative Copyright Choir mostly does what it says on the tin. It's a scratch chorus putting on a charity concert on 20th March 2009, with the aim of exploring alternatives to traditional copyright in choral music. Profits from the concert will be split between the fund for building restoration at St John on Bethnal Green Church and the Open Rights Group.

Equal Opportunities

The London Alternative Copyright Choir recognises that many individuals and communities experience unlawful and unfair discrimination and oppression on the grounds of their gender (including transgender and transsexual people), relationship or marital status, race or ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, age, HIV status, language, background, faith or religious belief, physical appearance and political opinions. We believe that equality for all is a basic human right and actively oppose all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. We celebrate the diversity of society and are striving to promote and reflect that diversity within this organisation.

The Equal Opportunities Policy of the London Alternative Copyright Choir has the following objectives:

If anyone involved in the London Copyright Choir or its performance(s) feels that they have been unfairly discriminated against for any reason, they should contact the project organiser, Kathryn Rose. Bullying, harrasment and victimisation will not be tolerated by the London Alternative Copyright Choir, and anyone found to be engaging in such behaviour will be asked to make a formal appology. Persistent behaviour of this kind, or unwillingness to appologise, could result in being asked to leave the choir.

The London Alternative Copyright Choir will do its best to be accommodating towards the needs and preferences of its members. If you need any special arrangements to be made in order to help you participate, please contact Kathryn Rose.

We want the London Alternative Copyright Choir to be a friendly and inclusive environment for everyone who wants to participate! It is the responsibility of all members of the choir to help us to foster this atmosphere.
