Earl's Pearls'

By Earl Meyers, Coordinator
Louisville Workshop, NSAI

"How trustworthy are people with your song ideas?" Terre Price asked the question at the June NSAI Louisville songwriters workshop meeting. My response was, "Maybe one out of a hundred would steal a line or an idea from a song. However, songs don't do you much good stashed in a closet. Though small, there is a risk, but the word gets around fast in the music business if someone is less than reputable.

I also suggested keeping data, such as the date, location, etc., of songs performed or played at events or critiques. It is information that could help in a court of law if ever needed.

Copyright laws will be addressed at an upcoming NSAI meeting.
