Berklee College of Music is conducting an online course on Copyright Law in the Music Business.
In this course taught by E. Michael Harrington, students will learn the basis for copyright including what is and is not covered by copyright law. This course will help clarify what rights artists have as creators as well as what the public is free to take from their work.
