ABC Interview – Music Copyright

Click below to listen to my interview with Josh Zepps on ABC Breakfast Radio this morning (Thurs 11 Jan 2018).

My original post on Lana Del Rey and Radiohead has also been updated in light of Warner/Chappell admitting they are in discussions with Lana Del Rey’s representatives but there’s no lawsuit on foot at this stage.

This has sparked much interesting media commentary. No doubt the debate will rage on around not just the purpose and limits of copyright law, but cultural boundaries and what we want to encourage and discourage in new music. As Amanda Petrusich of The New Yorker puts it, “Can something come from nothing? The bigger question may be whether we want it to.”
