Music Business/Law Tips - "Digital Frontier"
Mass media has gone primarily digital which means new opportunities for artists, songwriters, producers and performers to make money. One of the biggest factors is that in faraway lands with huge populations like China, India, Russia and Mexico, cellphones have proliferated so almost everyone in the world one day will be able access music and discover talent which should lead to new income on multiple levels, where before that was not the case (i.e., streaming, downloading, licensing, internet radio, etc.). Another cause is Internet sites like YouTube which can create viral exposure worldwide for almost no cost. Of course talent needs to make sure they are in a position to collect by joining organizations in advance like BMI/ASCAP/SESAC and Sound Exchange. Ben McLane Esq Benmclane.com
