Music Attorney | Defending and Protecting the Rights of Intellectual Property
The United States music industry generates approximately 19.6 billion dollars. It’s a worldwide industry, of course, and generates billions of dollars globally every year. When it comes to the rights of musicians, however, we’ve all heard stories about artists being pushed around or not being given a fair share for their work. Many times, this has to do with initial negotiated contracts or perhaps a misunderstanding of their rights as creators and musicians.
Music law is not widely discussed and yet it impacts everyone who listens, views, obtains, and/or purchases, music. It especially impacts those who create, sell, perform and/or distribute music. Establishments such as restaurants, for example, have a legal obligation to comply with music law and protect the rights of intellectual property and copyright. Music law can be federal, state, and local. Thus, it is important to speak with a professional who can guide you through what can be a complicated system.
Cynthia R. Lopez is a music lawyer who can help musicians and bands determine a fair and legal contract as well as booking agreements. Our law firm as a whole can help you with contracts, booking agreements, song copyright, band agreements, and other copyright protections.
