COPYRIGHTING CREATIVITY: NO EYES ALLOWED ON THE PRIZE

90 Minutes Unknown Premiere
FILM GUIDE COPYRIGHTING CREATIVITY: NO EYES ALLOWED ON THE PRIZE
Eyes on the Prize, the award-winning 1986 documentary series, includes a scene of Martin Luther King Jr.'s staff singing to him on his 39th, and last, birthday in 1968. But because of the copyright on "Happy Birthday" the scene was almost cut...producers were worried they couldn't afford it. (The film itself is currently unavailable to a new audience because of expired copyright licenses.) Join us for a conversation about how the rights and clearance system impacts the creative process and how we can find ways for musicians and filmmakers to have both the freedom and compensation to create lasting art.
