“I am aware that Berklee students normally will not come from law school and therefore will not have a legal background. I consider that copyright, intellectual property, and other legal aspects of the music industry should be taught to students or graduates with basic and entertaining language. Laws, cases, or legal doctrine as a subject may be very hard to digest otherwise. In the process of teaching, I like to explain the necessary concepts in a basic way and illustrate them with practical examples related to music copyright or music business from which the students can take their conclusions.”

“In my day-to-day practice as a lawyer, I deal often with composers, performers, producers, or concert promoters as well as with other people in the cultural industries to whom I have to explain the legalities involved in their situations with language easy to understand. I am also used to teaching at other institutions, so between teaching and practicing I have reached the balance needed to approximate the different legal and musical ‘languages.’”

“I shall try to wake up students' curiosity in legal matters that are very necessary in developing a career in a professional way, especially to avoid incurring any avoidable risks. When music becomes a business product, it is important to be aware of the key points that rule this material world.”
