World Intellectual Property Day: Boston

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 5:30 PM
Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston - 15 Channel Center Street, Suite 103, Boston, MA


Description:

What do Vanilla Ice, George Harrison, and- most recently- Pharrell Williams have in common? They have all had to pay the (literal) price of being on the wrong side of the "Blurred Line" of how far the copyright law will allow music sampling, borrowing, and remixing.

In honor of World IP Day, Boston explore the role of sampling, mixing and mashing plays in the creation of music in the 21st century through the eyes of music educators at the forefront of balancing the rights of the “borrower” with the rights of the “borrowed.” Join us for an evening panel discussion and a chance to see our local youth in action with a musical performance from East Boston’s Zumix.
