This course investigates the roles played by new and emerging network technologies in the creation, production, marketing, promotion and distribution of music and musical events internationally. We will explore the history and ongoing evolution of online music in all of its various forms. International subcultures and how their developments relate to music and the music industry will be explored in depth. New online alternatives to traditional music systems such as radio and retail stores will be studied in depth, comparing how these have developed in various parts of the world. The legal and ethical questions of copyright piracy both in the US and abroad will be investigated, as well as the internet's huge effect on the international music industry as a whole. The class will be conducted entirely using Moodle. Class work for the week will be posted by Monday and should be completed by Friday. I will ask questions about the assigned readings and provide links to other sites for example, listening and other information. You are expected to comment on these postings as well as your classmates' insights.
