Leave it to a songwriter to find a new way to look at copyright and what it can mean for the creators of original music. Disregarding the ongoing battle between big music and big tech over enforcing the existing copyright laws, there is an underlying principle in copyright that is often overlooked.
Women in Music and Tinderbox Arts are presenting a free talk on April 30th at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn featuring Songwriting and Music Business founder, Grammy nominated Amanda Williams.
“Copyright is not just something you do or have with your song. It is the bundle of rights that makes it possible to make a living following your bliss when you’re a songwriter,” says Amanda Williams, Grammy nominated songwriter and educator.
According to Williams, songwriters need to begin to think of themselves as music industry entrepreneurs if they want to ensure their place in the new millennium of the music business.
“The foundation is in place for songwriters to take control of their content, to work with technology providers making it possible for us to get our music out to the fans who appreciate what we do,” says Williams of her educational paradigm.
Eleanor Dubinsky, the NYC based singer and songwriter curating the Business of Songwriting workshop brought Amanda to the attention of Women in Music and Tinderbox Arts after having met Williams at the Durango Songwriters Expo in California in March.
“Amanda’s passion for helping songwriters and independent artists is contagious. After I saw her workshop in Santa Barbara, I wanted to help her get in front of as many people as possible. I was not only educated by her talk, I was inspired by the possibilities she presented.”
