Course Description

San Francisco Bay Area based Entertainment Law attorney Mark A. Pearson of ARC Law Group discusses the fundamentals of copyright in the music industry, focusing on the foundation of "two copyrights and six royalty streams." Mark breaks down how to protect written and recorded music and provides insights into how each is monetized. Topics include an overview of U.S. Copyright Law, protection of copyright rights, how to effectively work with producers/songwriters, performing rights societies, and licensing. He also discusses streaming royalties and changes under the Music Modernization Act. This program is designed to help attorneys who may already represent artists and other industry professionals, or who may have the opportunity to do so, understand the basics of music copyright and the implications of new content-delivery technologies.
