The way people are accessing, consuming and listening to music has changed dramatically, and the laws and mechanisms for collecting royalties are still catching up. The Music Modernization Act was passed by Congress in 2018, and it’s supposed to make it easier for musicians to collect certain royalties. In order to maximize revenue streams, musicians have to know their rights, organize their catalogues and register with the rights organizations that will be play a role in carrying out the Music Modernization Act.
On March 11th, join The Ella Project’s Ashlye Keaton and Dash Rip Rock’s Bill Davis at the New Orleans Jazz Museum at 6:00 p.m. as they discuss:
- What local musicians need to know Modernization Act
- Why copyright registration is more important now than ever
- Organizing Your catalogue and how Ella Project can help with that
- How and why to register Performance Rights Organizations, especially Sound Exchange
- Plus, your questions!
