Do I need to share songwriting credits with my band?

From: cliff k.

We hear these questions all the time from local Songwriters: Who in the band deserves to share the songwriting credit?  How do you copyright songs when you collaborate and what's a fair ratio of credit?  Is there a way to share the royalties with your band members without giving up songwriting credit? How do I make sure the recording studio gives me complete ownership of the final recording?  What's the easiest and cheapest way to copyright my music?

There are no easy answers to these questions.  But our guest speaker Speaker Marcy Rauer Wagman is the ideal person to help you figure it out- she is an attorney specializing in music copyright issues AND she's a very successful songwriter and performer.  Links to her bio on the meeting page.

Avoid arguments and legal issues with your musical partners, get the facts and strategies for success.

Interested?  Please RSVP for our next MeetUp on Nov 7th to get a copy of the hand-out materials and to reserve a spot performing a song after the presentation.

Best regards,

Cliff Keller
