Verse Three: Singer-Songwriters and Recording Agreements – Implications on Publishing

Please join Beame & Mencher LLP at The Living Room on Saturday, April 23rd, 2011 from 2:00pm - 4:30pm for Verse III of Songwriters Law Seminar - a three-verse series exploring the business of music, songwriters, and music publishing. To register, visit http://bmlawgroup.eventbrite.com

Register for Verse III for $30.00.  Space is limited!

Part Three of the Songwriters Law Seminar focuses on songwriters that are also recording artists. This part explores the interplay between songwriting, publishing deals, and recording contracts – examining the differences in copyright protection between musical compositions (songs) and sound recordings (masters), highlighting the impact of the controlled composition clause of a recording agreement on a songwriter’s publishing, and looking to the role of the “360 deal”  on the future of music publishing (if any).

  • Musical Composition & Sound Recording – Knowing the Different Rights and Organizations.
  • Which Came First?: Publishing Deal or Recording Contract
  • The Impact of the Controlled Composition Clause on Publishing.
  • “360 Deals” and their Impact on Music Publishing (if any).
