OA367: Interview with the “All the Music” Creators!

Today’s episode is a continuation of Part 1, in which we discuss Damien Riehl and Noah Rubin’s “All the Music” project and the history and future of music copyright. We’ve got a special treat for you in that Damien and Noah are both on the show to answer our (tough!) questions. You won’t want to miss this fun discussion!

We begin, however, with a listener question/comment about attending law school and balancing costs, risks, and budgets that many of our listeners will undoubtedly find timely.

Then it’s time to bring on Damien Riehl and Noah Rubin for a fascinating deep dive into the mechanics, the law, and the public policy behind their “All the Music” project. Where should our sympathies lie? What changes to copyright law would better benefit music creators? How do Riehl and Rubin see the fundamental issues in music copyright? You won’t want to miss this!

After the interview, it’s time for the answer to #T3BE 169 involving a tainted witness identification and the permissibility of eliciting testimony in court. Can Thomas start a new winning streak?? Listen and find out!


Andrew was just a guest speaker at Houston OASIS, and we’ll be working to bring you the audio of his speech from that event. And if you’d like to have either of us as a guest on your show, event, or in front of your group, please drop us an email at openarguments@gmail.com.
