5 Things All Musicians Should Know

Dave Cool has some advice for music artists. He recently posted 5 things every musician should know on Bandzoogle.

  1. All songs have 2 different copyrights – one for the musical work and one for the sound recording.
  2. Every piece of music is automatically copyrighted as soon as it is written down or recorded.
  3. Register your songs with the copyright office anyway.
  4. There are special copyright laws for songs that are have two or more writers.
  5. Make sure you license all cover recordings. It’s easy to do.
