In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Greg Eveline, an entertainment attorney, and John Snyder of ArtistsHouse and Loyola University, New Orleans discusses why copyrights and copyright law matters to musicians. They discuss who benefits from a copyright and how, what performance rights agencies do, some of the rights that attach to the copyright on a song, the five specific exceptions to a copyright, and run through some examples of how copyrights apply in specific situations (such as a song used in a movie, your song being recorded by someone else, what happens if you infringe on copyright, what work for hire is, etc.), and much more.
