Rock N' Roll Law
This basic course is meant to give attendees an overview of music copyright law concepts, including how to establish and register a copyright for your music, what is a copyright and how to get one. You will learn the two copyrights in every song. We will also drill down to discuss the sources of revenue songs can generate as well as explore the exclusive rights of a copyright and what those basic rights mean under federal law. You will explore how the music industry as it pertains to the law has changed over the years. All the while, you will listen to music and audio clips to elaborate on the law.
Lastly, you will delve into future issues of music streaming and sampling. The course will also explore user-generated content; performing rights organizations’ role in music, and the future of copyright lawsuits.
Ethics Portion of Course
The one-hour ethics portion focuses even more particularly on representing a band or artist and uses the final few years of The Beatles as a case study. Specific emphasis is placed on the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct (MRPC) 1.7 (conflict of interest—current client); 1.13 (Organization as a client); 1.14 (Client with Diminished Capacity); and 2.1 (Role as Advocate). The ethical issues in the “My Sweet Lord” copyright infringement case will be discussed.
