Music and the Law: Copyright and Music Study - Learners Lunch @ Music

Can I make an arrangement of that song? Can I put a copy of this score in my dissertation? What are my rights in the song I just wrote? What can I put up on YouTube? How can I find media that is copyright-free? Copyright plays an increasingly important role in the lives of musicians, but remains a subject of both myth & mystery.
