The landscape of the music industry has dramatically changed over the past few years. Gone are the days where the only way to achieve success in the music industry was through the support of a major record label. Today, musicians are able to get their music into the hands of millions of listeners easier than ever before.

Looking to capitalize on this change, independent record labels are frequently being created by both entrepreneurs hoping to achieve success in the industry by signing artists and musicians looking to self release their music. This course, presented by entertainment lawyer Julian Cordero, reviews the legal issues that may arise when counseling clients in the music industry throughout the process of forming and operating an independent record label.

  3. Review the third party organizations which would aid in the success of your client's music label
  4. Discuss which agreements are required for your clients in order to be operational and protected
