Navigating music royalties can be complicated, especially when you don’t understand the legalities of copyrights. Bree Noble interviews Dave Ratner, the Lead Lawyer at Creative Law Network.

But when you record it, that’s an entirely separate copyright that involves the master. So when a song plays over the radio, it generates performance royalties for you as the artist and for the master. That’s why it’s best to create contracts and consult a lawyer. If you want to know more about handling music royalties, tune in.
