music copyright infringement
The Columbia University Law Library has put together an outstanding web site on music copyright infringement decisions in US courts. They tell us that most of these types of cases settle out of court, and that there are fewer than 100 published judicial opinions on the subject since the mid 1900s. The section on individual cases includes some audio clips of songs in dispute, allowing you to make a decision based upon your own listening. The discussion section is tailored to give law students and lawyers a good understanding of some of the many issues involved in this type of problem, but anyone interested in writing music may also find this site worth a visit.
