In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – Wallace Collins, an entertainment attorney based in New York, gives a wide-ranging interview on numerous topics of interest to anyone interested in a career in music or music law. He shares his advice on how to become a music lawyer and what a typical day looks like in his office, and begins an extended discussion of the legal side of music as it affects players — why it’s hard to get out of a “bad” contract, when an artist should seek legal advice, what a “work for hire” is and how that term affects musicians signed to a label, how the Controlled Composition Clause can cost you lots of earnings potential, how copyright works, what compulsory licenses are, and much, much more.
