Product When you are asked to create music to sound like existing music, just how close can you get without creating a legal headache? Borrowing, sampling, or stealing: Where do we draw the lines? We will be discussing these issues with copyright expert Lon Sobel, forensic musicologist Danny Gould, and writers Julie & Steve Bernstein, creators of many great parody songs used on Steven Spielberg's ANIMANIACS.
