CMU’s acclaimed music rights course returns
The acclaimed CMU Training programme kicks off again next month, launching with the particularly popular ‘Music Rights: Inside & Out’ course.
Says CMU Business Editor Chris Cooke, who runs the course: “Everyone who works in music is, in a way, working in the copyright industry. Even in the live sector, what you’re staging is live performances of someone else’s intellectual property. Despite that fact, most jobs in this industry haven’t traditionally required much knowledge about what exactly this thing called copyright is”.
He continues: “However, as the business morphs into something very different, a basic understanding of what music rights are and how they can be monetised becomes increasingly important to help you identify and capitalise on new revenues and opportunities. That does mean getting your head around some IP law, but I think we present all that stuff in the most accessible and engaging way”.
The Music Rights: Inside & Out course covers basic copyright law, ownership and terms, monetising rights, compulsory licences and collecting societies, new music rights revenue streams and the protection of copyright. It is a full day (11am-6pm) course, and takes place on 3 Nov in Shoreditch, London. A place on the course is just £95 plus VAT.
