The rapid change in the digital music industry has left music creators and music industry rights holders confused, unaware of the extent of their intellectual property rights, and often unable to enforce those rights. Traditionally music creators and rights holders have resorted to federal copyright infringement lawsuits to rectify these problems. Unfortunately, these lawsuits are expensive, time consuming and inefficient. The purpose of this symposium is to examine other tools that are available to enforce music creators’ rights beyond federal copyright infringement lawsuits.
For the inaugural symposium, the organizers tentatively have four main panels and areas of discussion.
