At the center of many of the debates over broadcast and music licensing issues, he is a regular speaker at broadcast and digital media conventions and seminars. At one recent conference, he was introduced as “the radio industry’s lawyer.”  David is the editor and principal writer of the influential Broadcast Law Blog, read by thousands every month and widely quoted in broadcast, media and legal publications.
