Music Copyright Fundamentals
Copyright law protects an artist’s original creative expression. But how does it work, and what does an artist need to know in order to claim it? In this workshop, attendees will get an introduction to copyright law fundamentals:
What exactly does copyright protect?
What rights does copyright give me as a creator?
How do I obtain a copyright?
What is copyright infringement?
How do I protect my work using copyright?
We will also give particular attention to unique challenges presented by musical works, including the various music licenses.
