Dr Martin Schaefer will speak at the Life Webinar presented by the International Chapter of the Copyright Society and ALAI Germany on March 10 

Kraftwerk, Hip-hop, Prince, & Warhol: European & US Approaches to Sound Sampling & Appropriation Art- this is the topic of the Life Webinar with Dr. Martin Schaefer as moderator. 

The part he will moderate is about the "metal-on-metal" legal dispute, which has been pursued by a member of the cult band "Kraftwerk" for three decades and has so far been before the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) four times, the Federal Constitutional Court once and the European Court of Justice once, and which is about a sample from a Kraftwerk song in a hip-hop recording.
