Music Business Catalyst: Copyright, Copy...what?

Music is all about the art, but the music business couldn't function without two things - copyright and contracts. 

Join me for a special NIGHT edition of the Music Business Catalyst Sessions - the first of a five-part series on Law for Music Releases.

In part 1, we'll discuss everything you need to know about copyright in terms of songwriting, recording, and releasing your next record, including:

  • Whether mailing (or emailing) a copy of your song to yourself is good enough for copyright registration; 

  • How much of a song can you sample without having to get a clearance; and

  • When and how you can register a collection of your songs with the Copyright Office without paying multiple registration fees.
