Open Hours: MdVLA Fair Use

Free | BMA Commons

Ever hear about fair use? The convoluted, myth-laden defense to copyright infringement? That thing championed by remixers, collagers, and other mash-up impresarios? At MdVLA's Fair Use Fracas, you will see music and sound artists doing their best to put the tenets of fair use on display through live beat-making and synthesis, including a performance by MdVLA Board Member and Producer extraordinaire, Mighty Mark. In addition, MdVLA Executive Director, attorney Adam Holofcener, will present a workshop on the legal issues related to copyright and fair use. Don't miss this opportunity to learn about fair use while jamming out to some fair uses!
