Episode 11 - Music Licensing Part 4 - Cue Sheets

This is part 4 of 4 of our mini-series on music licensing! We discuss music cue sheets and a recent Federal Court of Canada decision regarding copyright infringement of a song. We also finally answer some questions from our listeners.

*This episode was recorded before we knew about Gigi Hadid’s defence and the outcome of the copyright claim against her. Watch for our next episode where we break down the dramatic conclusion of the copyright case against Gigi Hadid!*
