Music Rights 101: Risk Avoidance and Strategies in Using, Licensing, and Commissioning Music

On Wednesday, May 3, forensic musicologist and consultant Judith Finell will discuss the bundle of rights for using pre-existing music and recordings, as well as the risks and vulnerabilities to be considered in commissioning new musical works to fulfill and evoke a specific message, era, or demographic. She will provide examples of the way in which music is composed today, the use of temp reference tracks, and the ways in which new music technology introduces new potential risks of copyright violations – along with preventive measures that can be taken. Questions will be welcome. Attendance is limited so registration is requested.
