Whether via a sample, interpolation or an “homage,” the most interesting infringement cases often stem from how similar a musicologist determines one composition and/or sound recording is to another.  Our panel will cover a basic overview of musicological analysis and how both in general and specific ways such analysis can determine the path and outcome of possible infringement claims.

Panelists include musicologist Judith Finell, writer/producer Gregory Hutchison and Madeleine Smith/UMPG

Moderated by attorney Jesse Morris
