What do Musicians Need to Know about Copyright & Licensing?
- Get an in-depth look at the current business of music copyright and licensing. Students will learn about the history of copyright, current laws, and how it’s relevant for performers, composers, and all those working in the music field. Students will also learn about music licensing, how royalties are earned and distributed, and how streaming on the web is changing music licensing. We will consider real-life scenarios and actual case studies from the music business, and guest speakers will share insights and experiences from the field.
