The Music Plagiarism Project

The stated purpose of the Music Plagiarism Project is "to capitalize on the distributed nature of digital information systems to collect, organize and distribute graphic and audio materials associated with music copyright infringement cases in the United States from the middle of the nineteenth century on." The believe that for cases over twenty-five years old, this information is especially difficult to obtain and has never before been systematically collected or published in print or electronic format. Their goal is to accumulate and publish a complete collection of music copyright infringement opinions, comments about the musical works they consider, and graphic and sound files of relevant portions of these works.
