Whose Line is it Anyway? – Copyright Clearance in Screen-Music Studies

This round-table session led by Dr Vasco Hexel (Royal College of Music) and Dr Ian Sapiro (University of Leeds) aims to highlight the current state of copyright as it is applied to and upheld in academic publishing on film-music subjects. Copyright holders seem ill-at-ease, publishers are fearful of litigation and so-called fair usage is not easily settled. A brief introduction of some recent cases will facilitate an open discussion amongst the audience.

3.00-3.30pm: Tea/coffee break

3.30-4.00pm: Plenary Discussion

Future directions, and reflections on the conference.

4.00pm: Conference close
