PROTECT YOURSELF

THE IMPORTANCE OF LAW IN MUSIC

It is essential to understand how the law can protect you as a musician. Protecting yourself legally as a musician is crucial for safeguarding your creative work, ensuring fair compensation, and mitigating potential disputes. Intellectual property (IP) rights, including copyrights and trade marks, serve as valuable tools for protecting your music, lyrics, brand identity, and other creative assets from unauthorised use or exploitation.

For women and gender diverse musicians legal protection takes on added significance due to historical disparities and ongoing gender biases. Protecting your intellectual property and securing fair contracts can empower you to assert your rights, negotiate for equal compensation, and challenge systemic inequalities within the industry. By prioritising legal safeguards, you can assert control over your creative output, navigate professional relationships with confidence, and advocate for equitable treatment in a male-dominated industry.
