Music Copyright and Licensing (IP-436)
Music Licensing provides an overview of current music licensing issues from legal and practical perspectives. Understanding music licensing requires knowledge of music copyright; students will learn the relevant provisions of the current federal copyright law, and explore their historical underpinnings. Through the dual lenses of music copyright and licensing, students will gain an understanding of the modern music industry, which remains in a state of profound and disruptive transformation, as technological advances and other factors combine to challenge every precept of the "traditional" music business. In this "sea change" environment, music licensing has gained a higher profile, becoming a key driver of the music industry. Our studies will provide the essential tools for exploring general opportunities, and solving specific problems, in the fast-paced world of music licensing.
