David Lowery, a musician and faculty member in the University of Georgia’s Music Business Program, will testify on copyright law before a U.S. House of Representatives subcommittee on Jan. 28.

Lowery, who leads the rock bands Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, has been an outspoken advocate for artists’ rights, especially when it comes to file-sharing and lyrics websites.

He will speak before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet. Lowery’s testimony will be part of Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s (R-Va.) copyright review.
