The meeting of art and commerce can be a tricky one, and one key place where these two worlds meet is in the realm of copyright. Music copyright can seem daunting to even a seasoned musician, its complexities feeling insurmountable, like an instructional manual written in an unknown language. In this workshop, we'll navigate rights management and learn how artists can collect the royalties that are out there waiting to be claimed.
