Copyright is one of the most important yet misunderstood concepts within the music industry. This course will help you get a grasp of how copyright works in practice. We will cover the ways you can protect copyright and monitor and track royalty collections. You will learn about the different types of contracts, licensing agreements and deals that exist in the industry and how to ensure copyright protection while navigating this space. Lastly, you will learn about copyright infringement looking at case studies that cover prevention, common defences and interesting legal implications. By the end of this course, you will be well-equipped to navigate copyright management and protection.
