Professor of Media and Communication, University of Leeds

Bethany Klein is Professor of Media and Communication at the University of Leeds, UK. Her research interests include commercialism and the media, popular music culture, and media policy and regulation. As Heard on TV: Popular Music in Advertising (2009) looks at the use of music in television commercials as an example of the relationship between industrial and cultural change, and the role of commercial imperatives and corporate power in popular culture. Understanding Copyright (2015), co-authored with Giles Moss and Lee Edwards, considers why disagreement about copyright's role and scope is rife and how the policymaking process might accommodate a wider range of views. She is currently working on a book about popular music and "selling out".
