In this program, attorney/songwriter Jim Jesse explores "the meat" of music copyright law, as he walks you through ALL of the revenue sources songs can generate for your music clients.
Jesse takes a wholistic approach to the discussion of the six exclusive rights that come along with any song copyright: reproduction, distribution, public performance of the composition and the master, derivatives, and public display. He details each of those rights in the order they would arise during the songwriting/recording process.
Particular emphasis is focused on mechanical royalties, performance royalties, licensing, and publishing. The program also covers the permissions necessary to license the works of others.
This is the second installment of Jesse's Intellectual Property/Music Copyright series exploring issues lawyers may encounter when representing individual musical artists and bands. While the educational content of each installment stands alone, there are added benefits to attending all three.
