There have been a few threads here about creating your own website, which I’m in the middle of doing.
How are people handling the ‘legal/royalty’ part of it?
I am referring to such topics as:
1. How to agree on what kind of license they are buying? Is it part of the site or a conversation?
2. How do they receive your important information (contact info, BMI/ASCAP account number so you get royalties)? Do you send them a pdf? Include the metadata in your audio file?
3. Did you consult a lawyer beforehand? Why?
4. Anything else?
I’m still working on the site, but the intention is that it is more of an alternative to sending a hard drive full of my music to some industry contacts and less of a storefront … hopefully it’s a good idea!
