Does Tubbs Still Live in Miami?/Winter Music Conference

header2009a

I’m a bit spent after SXSW (read below).  Or maybe I’m just old.  Anyway, I’m going to suck it up and head down to the party that is the Winter Music Conference.

While I’m sure it will be fun, I’m there to work and spread my knowledge of copyrights and publishing (which is also fun).  In my on going quest of getting musicians to treat their music like a business, I’m fortunate to be speaking on a panel with other lawyers and industry execs who feel the same way.  In the ever changing industry which is seeing the rise of the do-it-yourself artist and the demise of the major label, it is even more important for the independent artist to protect her work and capitalize from all available avenues of income.  We will be focusing on the steps necessary to do just that.

I’ll be speaking at the Copyright and Publishing Panel on Friday, March 27, 2009 at 1:30 (EST).  Here’s a run down of the details:

1:30 PM Intellectual Property: Songwriting & Publishing Forum
Panel Room: Valencia Panel Ready Rm: Madrid

Learn how to protect your songs, programs, and ideas effectively. What are the pros and cons of publishing under a label or independently? Can you copyright your songs years after the release date? This panel takes an in-depth look at copyright laws and publishing contracts.
