Derivative Work: Copyright or CopyWrong?

Friday, March 20
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 15
Austin Convention Center

We live in a thriving culture where creation of derivative work is inevitable. Similar to software developers, music creators continually borrow, mix, and enhance each other's sounds. Evolution in music comes from continual experimentation and inspiration from the past and present. This evolution of collaboration and the freedom to share these creations is now in danger of being compromised by outdated Copyright laws. Whether you're a famous DJ or a die hard fan, nobody is immune. Join our discussion as we share grass roots insights about the challenges, advantages and the future of user generated music from the perspectives of services, labels, creators and consumers.
