What rights are you entitled to when you create original music? WHY and HOW should you copyright your music? What happens if you don’t properly register your copyrights with the Library of Congress? How do you put together an agreement that’ll keep your band members happy and motivated? In this episode, entertainment lawyer Jim Jesse (RockNRollLaw.com) joins Kevin to talk through some of the common legal issues indie artists face, how to avoid them, and how to minimize the damage if your rights ARE being infringed upon.
