Curation, Music and Law, Olufunmilayo Arewa, University of California, Irvine School of Law

  • 12:05PM to 1:30PM
  • HGS 119

One hundred years ago in early 1917, the Original Dixieland Jazz Band released the first widely disseminated jazz recording. This recording included the song “Livery Stable Blues,” which quickly became the subject of copyright infringement litigation in the case Hart v. Graham. This case ended in a court decision that soon became virtually invisible, at least in the legal universe. This legal case highlights the impact of curation, long recognized in artistic spheres but generally not acknowledged as such in law.
