Music licensing is the most lucrative and fastest growing revenue stream in the music industry today. However, to take advantage of it, you need legally clean work and proper information and representation to make sure you're getting every cent you deserve. California Lawyers for the Arts (CLA), Texas Accountants and Lawyers for the Arts (TALA) and New York Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts (NYVLA) are teaming up to provide musicians what they need to be aware of to properly license their music to film, tv, ads and other content while informing them of how to get FREE legal help to complete the deal when the time comes.
