Music copyright expert witness Dr. E. Michael Harrington is visiting Minneapolis to share advice and "war stories" from his work in connection with copyright infringement disputes. From his most recent work on behalf of artist Wiz Khalifa concerning an infringement dispute over the song "Black and Yellow" to music disputes such as Michael Cotrill vs. Britney Spears, Dr. Harrington's discussion will be both entertaining and engaging.
