Are you a musician, artist or working in the music industry? Or interested to know what the difference is between two songs that sound similar and a copyright infringement law suit? Learn about copyright, how it protects music and when the law says a song is infringing another in this new 4iP Council webinar.

The online session on 16 September 2020 will address the following:

  • Why copyright is important for musicians, artists, producers and those working in the music industry.
  • The basics on what copyright is.
  • How music copyright works, and how it is split up into different elements (lyrics, song, recording).
  • When it is copyright infringement or taking inspiration in song writing?
  • Recent copyright infringement case law and the impact on music creation.
