In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – In this panel held at the 2008 meeting of the American Bar Association’s Forum on Sports & Entertainment Law, panelists Ken Abdo, Ann Chaitovitz, Jay Cooper, Mark Goldstein and David Nimmer discuss what they expect will happen as copyright ownership on music recorded since 1978 begins to revert from the labels that released the recordings to the authors of the music, and all the difficulties that will arise from this transition — for example, ongoing attempts by the RIAA to add music to the list of nine specific types of work for hire, the question of who exactly is the “author” of a sound recording, and how future evolutions in content delivery are likely to affect copyright and royalty regulations.
