Your Instructors

Ewout Van Der Linden
After graduating from Erasmus University and some odd jobs, Ewout van der Linden probably had the weirdest career in music. Starting as a publisher in classical music, then becoming a promotor of jazz and pop concerts, then becoming the statistics man for Music Centre of The Netherlands. And also working in dutch Schlager music. At this moment Ewout is using his vast knowledge about all sides of the music business at Rotterdam Conservatory Codarts and SAE Institute as an instructor and coordinator. So: making sure all students know what’s going on in this fast moving business. His main focus of research is money and marketing in music and entertainment. Ewout is the owner of Music Motion and he organizes 'Music Pitch' network meetings in The Netherlands and Belgium and M-Bizz workshops about the music business.
Bindu de Knock
Bindu specialises in intellectual property law, including copyright law, trademark law, design law, trade name law, slavish imitation and misleading and comparative advertising. Bindu studied law at Leiden University and wrote her Master’s thesis on the adjudication of music infringement cases in the Netherlands and the United States. Early on in her career, she worked as a trainee attorney in the IP section at NautaDutilh, Amsterdam, in the course of which she also completed the Law Firm School’s professional training.
