Things You Should Know

UCLA is now the new home of the Music Copyright Infringement Project. What first started at MIT has now moved across the continent.

The purpose of this project is to make universally available information about U.S. music copyright infringement cases from the mid-ninteenth century forward.

New Materials:
In Play is a new ancillary component of this project that will cover recent and current disputes in the U.S. and overseas, including those that do not go to trial. (The main project deals only with music infringement cases that have produced judicial opinions.)
Glossary will be a modestly proportioned, and collaboratively assembled, glossary of musical terms that are commonly used in discussions of music copyright infringement disputes.

You can locate individual cases, look through the glossary, look up individual songs and its corresponding case and much more. The data dates from pre-1900 to 2009 and are free to the public.
