How Technology Affects Copyright Law for Music Artists

How Technology Affects Copyright Law for Music Artists | Entertainment Law and Branding | Scoop.it
There are more than a few ways to avoid copyright infringement when producing, sampling, or remixing songs.
Michael Loggia's insight:

I was drawn to an article on the EDM Network because it addresses a number of myths and assumptions music artists and other entertainers make because of advances in technology. 

 

Technology has vastly changed the landscape in music and copyright law. Social media networks and blog forums make it increasingly easier to copy intellectual property (e.g. photos and videos). This can be a huge burden for burgeoning entertainers who are just beginning to create an identity and business for themselves. 

 

An important aspect of copyright law is that a copyright begins as soon as the work is created. In legalese, a copyright is created when works are "fixed in a tangible medium." The article discusses instances where music artists need to seek permission before copying aspects of a song (e.g. producing a remix). 

 

I'm an entertainment lawyer for Los Angeles based Branded Entertainer and I deal with this topic all the time. Use this hidden gem to spot your own issues.
