MUSICOLOGIZED | News, Commentary, & Analysis

LATEST NEWS, EDITORIALS, and IN DEPTH ANALYSIS from BRIAN MCBREARTY.

Forensic musicology is the application of musical expertise, most often involving the analysis of melody, harmony, rhythm, and orchestration to illuminate the relevant truths in matters of civil law. Here on MUSICOLOGIZE we explain our forensic musicology services and our articles cover some of the most interesting cases currently in the news.

Music Copyright infringement cases actions are increasingly prevalent and the technology boom in the recording industry over the past decade has made it very easy to misappropriate intellectual property. Copyright infringement is not merely “sounding similar” however, and Musicology distills significant similarity from insignificant similarity and infringement from inspiration.
