Conversations with Interesting People: Sandy Wilbur 

Our Conversations with Interesting People series kicks off with Sandy Wilbur, a well-known forensic musicologist and resident of Londonderry, Vermont.

Sandy (pictured) will share anecdotes from her 25+ year career, including: 

– serving as an expert witness on the side of Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke in the Blurred Lines v Marvin Gaye case, as well as other high profile trials

– extensively researching the music for the Coen Brothers’ film “O Brother Where Art Thou”

– researching and advising clients about appropriate songs, recording artists and musical direction for specific TV and film projects

– clearing original music before it is broadcast or released and performing a musicological analysis 

Sandy, President of Musiodata, is well-known among copyright and entertainment attorneys, advertising agencies, music producers, publishers, record companies and film and television companies for her expertise in matters relating to music copyright infringement, sound-alike and public domain issues. She is frequently contracted to research, compare and contrast one piece of music with another; clear original music before it is broadcast or released; analyze potential samples; research the origins and/or public domain status of a particular song; and consult with attorneys regarding potential or pending litigation.
