Performing Copyright – Law, Theatre and Authorship
”Based on empirical research, this innovative book explores issues of performativity and authorship in the theatre world under copyright law and addresses several inter-connected questions: who is the author and first owner of a dramatic work? Who gets the credit and the licensing rights? What rights do the performers of the work have? Given the nature of theatre as a medium reliant on the re-use of prior existing works, tropes, themes and plots, what happens if an allegation of copyright infringement is made against a playwright? Furthermore, who possesses moral rights over the work?” (Source: https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/performing-copyright-9781509927043/)
Dr Luke McDonagh, Assistant Professor of Law, LSE Law School will give the presentation about key aspects of his book Performing Copyright – Law, Theatre and Authorship in University of Turku.
