Don’t Get Screwed with Erin M. Jacobson

13 January 2021

There’s a lot of confusing information in the music business:  copyright, different types of royalties, how to get paid, and how to not sign over rights you shouldn’t.  Now there is a single resource that explains these concepts in an easy-to-understand format. Written by Erin M. Jacobson, this book, written in plain English, is a straight-to-the-point primer on the topics you need to understand to make important decisions about your music career.

This book explains: what copyright really means and why you should register yours; the different types of royalties and how they actually apply in the real world so you can understand how and when your music earns money; how to collect the money your music earns; the contracts most needed by independent musicians and why they are important; traps to avoid; and real examples of mistakes musicians have made and how you can avoid making them too.

This book provides information from an industry insider that is not available in other publications and is an empowering resource for new, upcoming, and seasoned musicians.
