Session 1

Friday 10:45 - 11:55 am

Royalty Streams For Your Music

Learn how to secure all the royalty streams generated from your music while protecting all the rights to your work. Music royalties are payments that go to recording artists, songwriters, composers, publishers, and other copyright holders for the right to use their intellectual property. There are U.S. copyright laws that give artists these exclusive rights to their work.

Music Royalties are also generated for various types of licensing and usage. We’ll discuss everything from digital downloads to mechanical, public performance, synchronization, and print music.

Session 2

Friday 1:00 - 2:10 pm

All About Song Publishing

Music publishing 101. When music is used commercially (whether sold, licensed, or publicly performed), the songwriter and copyright owner is owed royalties. Publishing companies can offer multiple services for songwriters. As a ‘publishing administrator’, they administer the copyright – protecting the use of songs as well as collecting royalties owed from use. Some music publishers focus on the use and exploitation of the copyrights they administer by securing opportunities in the form of ‘sync licenses’ for film, TV, ads, video games, etc. Learn how to protect yourself while still negotiating your publishing rights.

All About Recording-Home Based-Studio

In the last ten years, the digital revolution has brought profound changes to the music industry.  While major record labels still offer the majority of music sold to consumers worldwide, their footing (and profitability) has been hurt by the rise of independent music.  The rise of independent music culture has also come hand-in-hand with another music revolution: the home-based recording studio. Never before has it been easier to start recording and mixing high-quality content from home!
