    Imitation Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery. ;-)

    We've been using minor variations on that tagline (written by me) to describe attendees of the SF MusicTech Summit since we started the event several years ago. It appears that Billboard (which call's itself "the premier trade publication for the music business") first started using this amusingly similar text just a few days ago.

    Though there is no affiliation between our upcoming events, we were glad to welcome Billboard's Editorial Director and their Conference Lead to our previous SF MusicTech Summit. It is quite ironic to see this "close imitation" of "language" come from Billboard, one of the leading advocates of the "unauthorized copying is wrong and should be severely penalized" position.

    Thank you TechDirt for noticing, and pointing this out...
