Friday, January 16th, 2015

Music BC Executive Director, Bob D’Eith, will be hosting a one-on-one legal advice clinic for musicians at the Music BC office in association with Music BC and Artists’ Legal Outreach. This is a free service provided by ALO while D’Eith, an entertainment lawyer, will be offering his pro bono services. This event takes place on Feb. 10, 2015 from 5-7 p.m.

D’Eith advises those attending to come with question prepared and offers this list of questions he regularly gets asked:

What is a band agreement and why do I need one?

What are the legal requirements for me to record someone else’s song?

I am working with a producer. What can I expect in regard to a producer’s agreement?

I have been asked to allow a video game producer to use my song. What should I say?

There are so many different types of artist deals out there today. I heard that a lot of labels are doing 360 deals now. What is a 360 deal?

How do I register my songs for so that I can protect my copyrights?

I am having a dispute with my co-writers and need help to figure out the legal copyright ownership splits.

I have been given a management agreement by someone, but I don’t know what it means.
