This webinar is designed to give you an overview of music copyright law concepts, but drills down when necessary to discuss specifics of topics like the sources of revenue songs can generate, among other pertinent areas.

This webinar covers the basics of music copyright law, including how to properly establish and register a copyright for music. You'll also explore the exclusive rights that come with a copyright and what those basic rights mean under federal law. The webinar will also discuss how the music industry has changed over the years and how that affects the law. Specific musical examples are used throughout the presentation to elaborate on the law.
