"Using Music in Digital Media: Business and Legal Issues," The Association of the Bar of the City of New York, New York, N.Y.
By David D. Oxenford and Robert J. Driscoll
Davis Wright Tremaine attorneys David Oxenford and Robert Driscoll presented to attorneys from committees of the New York State and New York City bar associations. In the seminar, Dave and Rob discussed the music licensing issues that can arise when music is used in digital media - touching on everything from royalties for the streaming of music by Internet radio stations, to the use of music in video productions or in advertisements that may be displayed online, to the occasional use of music by a business on its website to enhance the "stickiness" of that site. Many of the issues that were covered in the seminar are discussed in Dave and Rob's memo the on The Basics of Using Music in Digital Media.
