An interesting and timely article from my colleague Justin Goldspink in BASCA’s ‘The Works’ magazine.

A look at the legal issues behind the spate of recent songwriting copyright infringement claims in the UK and elsewhere. An interesting and informative read.

As these claims follow a series of high profile infringement cases in both the UK and USA, it seems timely to look at the key elements of an infringement claim and some of the recent practical and legal developments that may affect how such claims are handled by the courts.
