CMU:DIY workshops

CMU:DIY next week teams up with Trac – the folk development organisation in Wales – and the Musicians’ Union to present a half-day session for artists looking at music rights and the streaming market.

The session, led by CMU’s Chris Cooke, will explain all the basics about music copyright and how music rights make money, including a beginner’s guide to collective licensing. It will then delve into the streaming business, looking at how artists and labels get their music onto the digital platforms, and how digital royalties are calculated each month.

The session is open to participants in the Trac programme and MU members, and takes place next Tuesday – 11 Jun – in Cardiff.
