FYS 1043 - How Much For Your Song?

Hours: 4
The term intellectual property may make your eyes glaze over, but essentially this is about the ownership of creative work. Can a restaurant be closed down if a cover band plays Beatles songs? (Yes, it happens). Can a large corporation use a family photo for an advertising campaign without paying? (It has happened). Can the music and film industry go after Otterbein students for illegal downloads? (Yes, and they do). This course will look at the basics of copyright and other ideas of intellectual property. You will reflect on how this impacts your daily life at Otterbein. Further, you begin to form your own understanding of how creative work is made available and supported in the 21st century.
