Music Matters

If you create music or manage the legacy of some one who did, POBA’s Music Tips may be especially useful. A little known, limited window of time for reclaiming most copyrights granted in 1978 or later opened up in 2013. This could be a critical period in which music rights holders get to reclaim, re-negotiate and/or re-grant their copyrights on better terms.  For works created prior to 1978, opportunity remains, but the conditions are a bit different.  And regardless of whether you have a copyright opportunity coming, POBA gives general tips for preserving music legacies of all who create(d) songs, sounds recordings, or musical compositions.
