Bits, Bytes & Musician's Rights is a crash course in media, technology, licensing and monetization for musicians and performing artists. The class is offered as a response to popular demand for our class Bits, Bytes & Music Rights, an earlier seminar offered for media and content-driven startups. Familiarize yourself with the music industry, understand copyright law as it pertains to monetizing your work and your catalog, and learn to navigate the world of music rights and copyright licensing as an artist in the digital age.
In this session, you will:
--> Learn about what rights you may own to your music and to your brand as an artist, and how these rights may be monetized.
--> Get acquainted with the players in the industry so that you know who to go to for the right resources. Understand the difference between a label, music publisher, performing rights organization, manager and digital distribution company.
--> Get a sense of what you're worth in the marketplace: find out how much people really pay to license music for a variety of media uses.
--> Ask and get answers to burning copyright questions that have been keeping you up at night.
--> Meet other smart, tech-savvy artists and performers who are interested in creating and/or learning more about music and the music business.
As in all pariSoma classes, snacks and beverages will be provided!
