Monday, Nov. 13: Getting Rights Right for Musicians: The Case for Giving Away your Property
Guests: Wayne Marshall and Mike Fricklas
Using music as a case study we make the argument that most musicians stand to benefit, financially and otherwise, by openly sharing their music under a permissive rights system. At the same time we will look for balance in the legal rights which a creator may claim allowing for full choice with minimal coercion beyond the incentives of the new marketplace. Weâll look at the changes currently taking place in terms of music production and music consumption. Weâll also look at the rights systems available.
