As your commitment and professional career are growing more serious, so is your value – and the value of your work. It’s time to look into legal protection for your work in the form of copyrighting.
Copyrighting protects the things you’ve created, so that only you can profit off them – no one else – unless you give them express permission, like a licensing deal, where you get financial reimbursement for the use of your intellectual property (IP).
As you begin to release merch, go on tour, and have a bigger footprint in terms of your image and materials’ exposure, you will need to copyright so that people don’t take advantage of you.
Learn about copyrighting and star the process before your next single release! Protect yourself and protect your work. You never know which song will blow up!
