Course Reviews

“This was a good course I learned a lot about royalties and copy write information that I did not know before.”

— Mr Taylor

“I would have to say that this course, completely changed the way I look at the music industry. Honestly I read a Music Publishing book, and it pales to what Dr. Bissel has disseminated in 103 minutes!”

— Dusha C Holmes II

Music isn't just an art, it's a business, too. And every creator of a song, a lyric, a melody or score is protected by Federal Copyright Law. This course, Music Business 101 , will teach you how you can harness the power of Copyright to further your career and your bank account!

This little symbol we call the copyright sign '©', can change your career and your life.
It protects you from theft. It gives you powerful Federal rights. And it acts as a money funnel, directing income right to you: the copyright owner of the music.

If your song is broadcast on the radio, TV, satellite or cable, appears in a movie, is used in a commercial or performed in a bar, legally (or illegally) downloaded, covered by a band, used on a website, or even sampled in someone else's song, stolen or copied... you are owed money! However, you won't get a cent unless you are the copyright owner and know how to protect your rights!

In this first course of a four-part series, Professor Paul Bissell will take you on a thorough and entertaining ride through the basics of copyright. You'll learn about the different kinds of copyright and Paul will explain the "five rights" granted to you by law. You'll also learn about Mechanical, Synchronization and Performance royalties. You'll understand what they are and how to get them!

Most of all, you come away from this course with a new appreciation—and a powerful understanding—of what copyright is and how you can use it to protect your music! So get ready to take the first step toward turning your music skills into a music business. Join Paul Bissell on this fun and entertaining exploration we call Music Business 101!
