Workshop #2 BMI Music Licensing & Music Law by Porfirio Pina

This workshop will cover legal and licensing issues as well as copyrighting your materials, what it means to "sign with BMI," and how artists, producers and song writers are compensated.

Workshop #3 Record Labels 101 by Andrea Johnson, Berklee College of Music

Record labels have always been the focus of power, ideas, and money. Labels discovered the talent, pushed the songs, and got the product on the air and into the stores. Find out who are the major players, how they find their artists, and how you can get in to the game. Learn about why the new Jay Z/Live Nation 360 deal has an impact on you as an artist, why you never want the terms "cross collateralization" in your contract, and the differences between being signed to a major vs. an independent label.
