  1. Thanks so much Dean, Kristine, and Orna. This was a really, really great interview. I studied copyright for music in college in 2010, so have a rough understanding of how it works (in Australia, at least), but do you have any recommendations on the best resources for studying and understanding copyright and IP further? I’ll be going through Dean and Kristine’s blogs soon to scour for information, and I’m planning on picking up the Magic Bakery. Hopefully that’ll get me started, but I’d really value any of your input for further resources. 🙂 Thanks!
