It’s been way too long since I lasted posted anything on my blog. It’s not that there hasn’t been anything interesting to write about in the realm of copyright, music, my cats or any other myriad topics like “why can’t Roger Federer convert two match points?” No, I’ve just been too focused on other things: launching a new business for classical and jazz composers, assisting my clients with their legal issues, teaching college classes on music publishing and the recording industry, losing 20 pounds, doing a gig at Cornelia Street Café, writing new songs in preparation for an October 19 gig and finally learning to hit a one-handed topspin backhand.
However, my friend and professional butt-kicker, Nancy Tierney, tells me that if I really want my law practice and my new business – which I hope to launch in the beginning of next year – to soar, I’ve got to keep this blog thing going on a regular basis. So, I’m going to update the blog by starting with some re-posts of articles that originally appeared on BMI’s Songwriter101.com site, where I am a member of the “faculty” (check out the site in a month or so for some new articles on Grand Rights and other topics) as well as some new musings written just for you.
So, if you’re interested in music, tennis, copyright and cats, please check back here regularly. And if you haven’t already done so, please take my Copyright Quiz. Nancy says I should post something once a week and I’m going to try very hard to do it because I really don’t want bruises on my behind. Comments are always welcome and appreciated. Thanks for reading.
