This item is expired.

No matter your music preferences, music affects us all and flows through many industries. Music can be found everywhere from elevators to sports games, film and TV, and social media content. Life needs the background music, and this means new opportunities and new hurdles for clients and attorneys.

Join us as we take a closer look at the very nuanced field of music copyright law, setting you up to hit the perfect high note with a strong foundation, best practices, and practical takeaways.

Beginning with the basics, this program walks attorneys through basic copyright and IP foundations to gain an understanding of how these rules are applied to the music industry and beyond. We discuss how copyright applies to music, music licensing, broadcast rights, social media content, and music copyright infringement, as well as common legal issues to consider and potential impacts to your clients.
