In today’s digital world, more and more companies want to use music for their business purposes – whether as the primary focus of an entertainment web-site, the background to a commercial or video, or otherwise.

This non-CLE program will focus on business and legal issues regarding the use of music in digital media, and discuss related rights and clearances that need to be obtained, other steps one should take to minimize potential legal liability, and current controversies that remain to be resolved by the Courts and Congress.

Program Fee, including lunch, is $35 for members for either the NYSBA or the NYCBA.
