On Wednesday night, our community partners at Helping Our Music Evolve hosted a ‘HOME School’ panel discussion, featuring three Nashville-area entertainment attorneys who discussed some of the most common pitfalls they see when helping the music community navigate their legal hurdles:
- Artist and band name trademarks.
- Clearance, sometimes holding up — or even nullifying — record deals or licensing agreements.

- Force Majeure and COVID’s impact on the importance of this standard clause.

Dreamin’ of things, you’ll never do.
You’re too scared to fail, so you’re too scared to move.
Behind every musician at every neighborhood open mic, there is a dream and a message.Watch the Video
