The work of collecting royalties and navigating licenses for recordings can be a confusing and mysterious task for the independent musician.  The objective of this two-hour, limited-capacity workshop is to help songwriters achieve a basic understanding of the ways in which their music is and can be licensed.  We’ll talk about the rights that copyright holders have, the different kinds of licenses you can grant, collecting royalties, and where and how to register your copyrighted songs.

Christopher Salveter is a Chicago-based singer songwriter and DJ who performs under the name Judson Claiborne and DJ Lil’ Boy w/ a Beard.  He has recently begun working in Music Departments for film and TV productions.
