Finding harmony between ‘commonplace’ and copyright: A sound legal approach to borrowing in popular music

Speaker:       Chelsea Wong, Solicitor, Dentons Kensington Swan

Chelsea is a musician and IP lawyer, currently based in Wellington. She holds BMus (musicology and violin) and LLB(Hons) degrees from the University of Auckland, and previously managed music education projects at Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

Drawing on both her music and legal knowledge for this seminar, Chelsea will discuss recent US high profile cases including Skidmore v Led Zeppelin and Gray v Katy Perry, the common challenges encountered by courts in music copyright cases, and why New Zealand’s own Eight Mile Style, LLC v New Zealand National Party (the ‘Eminem’ case) is a hit worth listening to. The original paper of the same title, co-authored by Chelsea Wong and Thomas Huthwaite (Senior Associate, AJ Park), was the Third Prize winner of the 2020 John Emmerson QC Prize.
