Talking Points 2:

Are you good at creating dance moves or choreography? If so, you should legally protect your dance. The purpose of having your dances registered with the U.S Copyright Office is to protect your work. What if someone just took your whole dance routine, and they made money from your dance? You want to get paid for your work, right? Or, you may want to have a say so if someone uses your dance in general. Well, in the United States, in order to have this kind of control over your dances, or to sue someone for taking your dances, you must have a copyright certificate from the U.S. Copyright Office. A copyright certificate is needed to file a copyright infringement suit, which is basically a copyright lawsuit. Go to Class Static Productions and protect your dance now!

Education Talking Points:

For dance creators: When you are pursuing your dance career, it is important to take the business side as serious as the creative side. One way you can do this is by setting your budget for the business side of things. For example, instead of posting your dances on social media as soon as you create a dance, submit your dance to Class Static first before posting your dance on social media. Then after the business side is taken care of, then post your dance on social media. By taking care of the business side first, it can help you save money and time in the future. It’s all about what you prioritize as important! So, make sure to make the business side as much as a priority as the creative side.

For music creators: When you are pursuing your music career, it is important to take the business side as serious as the creative side. One way you can do this is by setting your budget for the business side of things. For example, instead of going to the studio to record ten songs, record five, and take care of the business side for those five songs first. You can do this by submitting your songs to Class Static for copyright protection and royalty collection. Then after the business side is taken care of for those five songs, move on to the next five songs and repeat the same process. By taking care of the business side first, it can help you save money and time in the future. It’s all about what you prioritize as important! So, make sure to make the business side as much as a priority as the creative side.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  1. What if I leased a beat from someone else? Can I still copyright the song that I wrote to the beat?

 

  • When you lease a beat from someone else, the person you lease the beat from is the owner of the beat. So, you cannot copyright the beat, but you can copyright your lyrics if you are the person who created the lyrics. Also, depending on the license agreement, you can still distribute the beat that you wrote your song to. However, just make sure to follow the terms within each leasing agreement because they all can be different.

     2. What if I have exclusive rights and exclusive ownership to the beat I purchased? Can I               copyright the beat if I have exclusive rights?

  • Yes, if you have exclusive ownership of the beat, you can copyright the beat because you are now considered the owner. However, just make sure to read all the terms. Producers can have different meanings of what exclusive rights and exclusive ownership mean in their contracts.
