Business of Music - Class 3 "Mechanicals"

by Walt Ribeiro

Published February 3, 2018 in Entertainment

This class we took an exhaustive list at mechanical licenses, and introduce ourselves into contracts.

I added a new slide at the end that shows the different types of Creative Commons licenses. You don't have to memorize them, but you should familiarize yourself with them.

Next week we'll look further into the reading material, contracts, and the team of agents, managers, and layers that you should surround yourself with (or not surround yourself with).
