Abstract

Surprisingly, there are only two reported decisions in Canada in which a musicologist or professor of music was qualified as an expert witness. In this article, we examine those cases and consider the practical application and challenges of retaining a musicologist in copyright infringement cases.

Keywords: copyright, infringement, Canada, musicologists, experts, testimony
