Creating music is a wonderful thing, for you, for the people around you and for world cultural heritage. It requires a great deal of practice, imagination, study, creativity, dedication, and refining of personal talents. It is something which artists spend a great deal of time and money on.
Investing so much time and effort into creating music, artists need to also ensure that this work has a financial value for them (so that they can continue to create!). The global system of "Copyright and Related Rights" ensures that they have the opportunity to protect and gain value from their creative work and, as an artist, these are Your Rights!
Developed in 2009 by Music Crossroads International and UNESCO, Your Rights! is a guide to help young musicians make sense of the complicated world of Copyright.
This handbook will take you through the foundations of Copyright law, and contains loads of useful information on related (neighboring rights), collective management/collective societies, illegal use, and copyright contracts. It also includes country specific information for musicians in Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
