SPEAKER // Justin Laughter of Threshold Counsel, PC

TOPIC // Music Law

Songwriting and Sound Recording Law
Ever wonder who owns the copyright in a song written and arranged by members of a performance group? How about who owns the sound recording of a song tracked at a studio? Copyright law and content ownership is critical to the success of a musical artist. Often referred to as "mailbox money," musical composition and sound recording licensing and residual payments are important sources of income for songwriters and recording artists. This program will teach attendees the basics of song and sound recording law ownership and licensing.

Band Entities and Agreements
Are you a band member or considering starting a band? Do you know what to look for in a bandmate and how to document your agreement to operate the band during the highs and the lows? We all want our bands to be creatively and financially successful. Unfortunately, though, undefined goals and misunderstanding waste time and frustrate these efforts. What was easy to ignore during the excitement of the band's launch can become its achilles heal during the roller coaster ride that is band life. This program will discuss the questions band members should ask each other before finalizing the band structure and what band agreement provisions should be considered to ensure band operations align with agreed upon goals, expectations, and obligations.
