CSUSA LA presents: Recent Developments in Music Copyright Law

ABOUT THE PROGRAM:

Join the Marin County Bar Association's Intellectual Property Section and the Northern California Chapter of the Copyright Society for a virtual webinar on Recent Developments In Music Copyright Law to be held on Tuesday, May 11th from 12:00 to 1:00 PM.

Recent years have seen major developments in the law of music copyright. Legislatively, the enactment of the Music Modernization Act in 2018 was a major milestone that dramatically altered the landscape for licensing of musical works and, for the first time, extended federal protection to pre-1972 sound recordings. Case law developments have been equally dramatic, especially in the Ninth Circuit. After first lowering the bar for establishing infringement of musical works in the 2018 and 2019 "Blurred Lines" and "Stairway to Heaven" decisions -- setting off a wave of challenges to major recording artists -- the Ninth Circuit reversed course in 2020. Overturning a number of earlier decisions, including the 2019 panel decision in the "Stairway to Heaven" case, the court sitting en banc once again raised the bar for establishing infringement of musical works. David Kostiner and Jeff Knowles will walk you through these developments.

There will be time for Q&A following the presentation.
