HOME School Presents: Expect the Unexpected

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.

When your inbox looks like ours does these days — still, and probably forever, catching up from being out of town — that’s nothing short of a blessing to get this music featured.
