CREATe Public Lectures 2017: Plagiarism in music copyright

‘Stop Me If You Think That You’ve Heard This One Before: plagiarism in music copyright’ as part of CREATe Public Lectures 2017 Where can you draw the invisible ‘line in the sand’ which separates an infringing piece of music from one that simply draws on the influence of other works for inspiration? In this interactive CREATe Public Lecture, composer and music publisher Dr Simon Anderson, attempts to answer this question. The interactive presentation examines plagiarism cases that have been heard before the English courts in recent years, with music clips and scores to facilitate comparison. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote on whether they think a tune infringes or not.

Copyright and Brexit: the Case for a Related Right for Press Publishers

‘Copyright and Brexit’ as part of CREATe Public Lectures Academics are arguing that aspects of the proposed EU Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market, such as the press publishers right, will be harmful for access to information and digital dissemination of news.

Xalabarder’s Public Lecture (Read and see here). But, are there any merits of a related right for press publishers in the proposed directive?
