The Curious Lawyer: U2 – Where the Law’s Streets Have Names

If you love the music of U2 and want to learn about copyright, this is for you. We explore all aspects of copyright law by looking at various U2 songs and cases to unpackage copyright’s basic precepts: what is copyrightable, the line between ideas and expression, infringement, and fair use. And along the way, we explore a fascinating trial in Dublin when U2 sued to reclaim some of their archived materials.
