If you are a songwriter or composer, you need to copyright your work, and you need to be aware of all the music publishing concepts so you can collect money for your work.  But… if you’re a musician who performs or records works by other songwriters and composers, you need to know this information as well.  This seminar covers the ins and outs of copyrights.. when you need them, how to get them, how long do they last, and when you don’t actually need them (fair use).  Just as important.. you need to understand the 4 types of music publishing:  mechanical, performance, sync, and print.  Critical for collecting money as either a songwriter or performer.  “Must know” information for anyone who is writing or performing in today’s music industry!
