How is the term Intellectual Property applicable to music? When it comes to legalese, do you know the difference between protected music and music in the public domain? How about the difference between using an original musical score, pre-existing musical compositions, or sound recordings? Among the plethora of details, a filmmaker must remember when producing a film, legal requirements for music licensing have proven to be one of the more tricky areas for local producers to grasp. There are various types of music licences used in film production, and in this one-hour presentation, IP Specialist Fabien Alfonso will clarify the details of music clearances in film and further highlight the adverse effects of not obtaining such clearances.
