Music and Copyright provides the first comprehensive analysis of music infringement issues within the context of copyright litigation. Set forth in understandable language, it examines this important area of copyright law, which continues to be widely misunderstood by lawyers, business people and - perhaps most seriously of all - the federal judiciary. It combines music and copyright theories with practical approaches to understanding musical ideas and expression and providing guidance in the difficult task of disentangling unprotectable ideas from protectable expression. It provides a practical and strategic roadmap to a music infringement action, beginning with the client's claim or defense and continuing through the selection and use of experts, conducting effective discovery, moving for summary judgment and trial.
