The panelists will focus their attention on music, talking about protections for musical compositions and sound recordings, compulsory vs. market-based approaches to licensing, the roles of various institutional players in the music industry (including publishers, labels, and performance rights organizations), and the scope of the fair use doctrine. The panel will also address broader concerns in the copyright and content licensing landscape, including questions about the nature of authorship and transformative works in the visual arts context.
