360 Deals and Self-Distribution for Musicians

with Doug Mark, Esq.

10-11:30 AM

Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012

We'll discuss the economic forces that led record labels to enter 360 contracts (where the label receives a percentage of all income a musician receives), how their artists have reacted, and how independent labels and artists have responded. We'll review a template 360 deal, and discuss which types of labels and distribution are right for which types of artists. Finally, we'll discuss formation of the appropriate business entity for musicians, whether they choose to self-distribute or sign with a label.

Speaker: Doug Mark has represented numerous entities in the music and film industries since 1986, including independent and major record companies, independent and major music publishers, superstar and new recording artists, record producers, film composers, executives, and technology companies. Doug serves on the board of the UCLA Entertainment Law Institute, among other boards.
