Copyright Seminar: The Music Business (3)

This seminar will study how the Copyright statute structures the operations of the music business. It will examine how the exclusive rights granted by the statute combine with various business models and technologies so that musicians can receive income from the reproduction, distribution, and performance of music. Topics considered include: recording contracts, peer-to-peer file sharing, satellite radio, internet downloads, webcasting, and ringtones. In addition the seminar will explore the problems created when standard industry allocations of rights prevent or inhibit exploitation of new capabilities offered by emerging technologies. Prerequisites: either the basic course in Copyright Law or the Intellectual Property Survey.
