Posted on: Dec. 8, 2020

Prof. Theo Cateforis, Associate Professor and Director of Undergraduate Studies in Fine Arts and Music History & Cultures, was quoted by NBC News in an article about the sale of Bob Dylan’s entire songwriting catalog to the Universal Music Group.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

This deal also means more of Dylan's music will likely wind up in commercials, movies, TV shows and "any place where familiar music can be monetized through licensing deals," said Syracuse University music history pro Theo Cateforis.

"At one time, back in the 80s or 90s there may have been considerable resistance to this kind of 'selling out,' but this has become a more common practice over the past couple of decades," Cateforis said.

Congratulations, Prof. Cateforis!
