Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca 2015 The University of Akron School of Law

Work Made For Hire – Analyzing The Multifactor Balancing Test, Ryan G. Vacca

Ryan G. Vacca

Authorship, and hence, initial ownership of copyrighted works is oftentimes controlled by the 1976 Copyright Act’s work made for hire doctrine. This doctrine states that works created by employees within the scope of their employment result in the employer owning the copyright. One key determination in this analysis is whether the hired party is an employee or independent contractor. In 1989, the U.S. Supreme Court, in CCNV v. Reid, answered the question of how employees are distinguished from independent contractors by setting forth a list of factors courts should consider. Unfortunately, the Supreme Court did not give further ...


Tim Key And Gogol's Overcoat: Review 2, Kari Hesthamar 2014 University of Wollongong

Tim Key And Gogol's Overcoat: Review 2, Kari Hesthamar

RadioDoc Review

Tim Key - poet, comedian, and crumpled polymath - is obsessed with Nikolai Gogol's short story The Overcoat. Written in 1842, it's a fable of a simple clerk whose desire for a new coat to keep the St Petersburg winter at bay forever changes his life... and ultimately destroys him.

Tim's off to find out what - if anything - Gogol's mysterious story can tell us... and why The Overcoat feels even more relevant in the 21st century. Is this fable the seed of alternative comedy? Should more of us pay heed to this bizarre morality tale? And above all ...

Children Of Sodom And Gomorrah: Review 2, Virginia Madsen 2014 University of Wollongong

Children Of Sodom And Gomorrah: Review 2, Virginia Madsen

RadioDoc Review

This essay is an exploration and critical sounding of the multi-award winning radio feature Children of Sodom and Gomorrah: why young Africans flee to Europe (ARD 2009/ABC 2011) by the Berlin radio author/journalist and director Jens Jarisch. The reviewer, Virginia Madsen, finds something close to a dialectic approach in this unforgettable and searing ‘radio film’, but also the resonances of what she explores as ‘allegorical thinking’. Jarisch, even if unconsciously, appears to have dug down deep into the modern-day ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah, a ‘no place’ in Accra, Ghana where children eke out a living, forfeiting their ...


Children Of Sodom And Gomorrah: Review 1, Alan Hall 2014 University of Wollongong

Children Of Sodom And Gomorrah: Review 1, Alan Hall

RadioDoc Review

Nothing in Children of Sodom and Gomorrah happens by accident. It is an exquisite – if, from the opening montage, uncomfortable – sound experience. The production – both Jarisch’s own origination in German and Sharon Davis’ re-versioning – is impeccable. It is thoroughly wrought. An artefact to admire. The famous scene in the manager’s office unveils a damning denouement with the flourish of a radio master: surreptitious recording, an artful ‘echo’ voice that draws attention to key statements and carefully scripted narration mesh tellingly to deliver the reporter’s verdict. The same care in production is evident throughout the program: beautiful sound ...

Norman Corwin's The Lonesome Train (Live Broadcast) Cbs 1944, Tim Crook 2014 University of Wollongong

Norman Corwin's The Lonesome Train (Live Broadcast) Cbs 1944, Tim Crook

RadioDoc Review

The Lonesome Train was a commercial half-hour ‘ballad opera’ or folk cantata, transmitted in 1944, about the funeral train bearing President Abraham Lincoln’s body home after his assassination in the Ford Theatre of Washington D.C. in 1865. This became culturally resonant in 1945 on the death of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, when the Decca recording of the show became a sort of ‘media requiem’, played over and over again on US radio stations. The live production, directed by Norman Corwin, is a hybrid between drama and documentary, but goes further with its use of music and poetry… perhaps ...

Improving Simulations Of Sonic Booms Heard Indoors And Outdoors And Explore How The Sound Characteristics Affect Annoyance, Yingxiang Jiang, Patricia Davies 2013 Purdue University

Improving Simulations Of Sonic Booms Heard Indoors And Outdoors And Explore How The Sound Characteristics Affect Annoyance, Yingxiang Jiang, Patricia Davies

The Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Symposium

Supersonic flights can greatly shorten the flight time in the world and provide convenience for people all over the world. However, commercial supersonic flights over US territories are banned by Federal Aviation Administration in 1973 due to the intolerably loud noise of sonic booms. Recently, a few demonstrator aircraft have been built that produce much quieter booms. To determine whether the new boom is acceptable, many laboratory researchers are using simulated sonic boom signals for subjective test because the method is easy and cost-efficient, whereas it might not have enough fidelity to address the effect of the original one. In ...


Resampling Gender In Music Production: Community Development And Participatory Learning At Play, Heather L. Kirby 2013 McMaster University

Resampling Gender In Music Production: Community Development And Participatory Learning At Play, Heather L. Kirby

Graduate Major Research Papers and Multimedia Projects

Women are seriously underrepresented in the field of music production because of a number of social and systemic barriers. These barriers include a lack of access to technology, a lack of encouragement to use technology, shortages of same-sex/same-gender role models, and the marginalization of women’s contributions in the field. In response, I organized the event “Resampled music production workshops for women and trans folks.” My aim was to challenge some of these barriers and to encourage women and trans folk to engage in music production. A team of experienced female facilitators led the Resampled workshops, which covered a ...

Opening New Windows (And Doors) For Independent Artists Online, Matthew Musacchio 2013 Syracuse University

Opening New Windows (And Doors) For Independent Artists Online, Matthew Musacchio

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Since August 2012, I have been working with Kara Della Valle, a country singer-songwriter known for her YouTube success. For this project, I took on the role of artist manager. I developed a plan to take Kara’s career beyond YouTube, with a focus on other forms of social media to build her fan base and promote her music. This Capstone Project explores the trials and triumphs of working with an independent artist.


Overtone Analysis Of A Holtkamp Organ Using Fourier Methods, Mario Harper, David Berg 2013 Utah State University

Overtone Analysis Of A Holtkamp Organ Using Fourier Methods, Mario Harper, David Berg

Student Showcase

This research is a study of the similarities and differences of the four sound families (principal, flute, reed, and string) of the organ, specifically, we used the organ located in the Kent Hall at USU. This experiment focuses on the mechanics of the organ, turning sound into mathematical signals, and performing Fourier analysis using computer methods. We conclude that a certain family of pipes (flute pipe family) had the most similarities to the “natural” series while the reed family was the most variant. We show the steps taken in our experiment and attempt to explain the variance and correlation of ...

Exploration Of Physical Computing: Digital Interfaces Using Microsoft Kinect And Peggy 2 Led Matrix, Jeffrey Franklin 2012 California Polytechnic State University

Exploration Of Physical Computing: Digital Interfaces Using Microsoft Kinect And Peggy 2 Led Matrix, Jeffrey Franklin

Liberal Arts and Engineering Studies

Physical computing, or more specifically social immersive media, is an offshoot of New Media that incorporates interactive physical systems (software/hardware systems) to sense and respond to the analog world. This serves as a creative framework for understanding our own relationship to the digital world. In this project, computer vision is incorporated as a medium between both input and output through the use of two cameras, a typical webcam and a Microsoft Kinect. For the first part of the project, a webcam streams visual data into a computer program which interpolates the video data into a 25x25 virtual dot matrix ...
