Artistry and Artificiality? Music and Copyright Workshop – University of Glasgow

A- A A+

Just heard about this upcoming workshop that might be interesting for Infosocers before the EUI academic year gets fully underway. Here’s the blurb:


“6 September 2013, 9.30am-5.30pm, Melville Room (Main Building), University of Glasgow

This interdisciplinary workshop brings together specialists in music and in copyright law to discuss the way in which copyright conceptualises music from the perspectives of the musician/musicologist as well as the lawyer. The talks will examine issues like: what do we understand by (classical, contemporary) music and the musical work? What does music-making involve? What does music improvisation mean? What is composition and musical creativity? Does copyright take account of the notions of music and music creation, and how? What do authorship and co-authorship mean for the musician and for the copyright lawyer? What are the effects of copyright protection on the creation and exploitation of music?

The full programme is here.

There is no charge for the event, but advance registration for catering purposes is required.
