A comprehensive look at copyright law and its protections for all creative works, with a specific emphasis on copyright's applicability to the music industry. The course will take an in-depth look at copyright concepts first introduced in MB-101 Introduction to the Music Business and MB-211 Legal Aspects of the Music Industry, and further introduce students to enforcement mechanisms, defenses, and requirements for notice and registration. Pending legislation and the applicability of currently existing law to new media such as downloads and streaming will also be covered. The course would be helpful for anyone seeking a career in entertainment, but specifically law and licensing.
