Is Your Music Great?   The things that hold musicians back from success in the music licensing business are bad music and lack of promotion. On the flipside, writing great music and promoting it regularly is a powerful combination that all but guarantees success. As an example, I work with a small group of artists whom I help promote to the tv and film markets. I recently started working with a new band, who are by all accounts truly spectacular. I think they’re great and everyone I work with seems to agree. I’ve had probably six requests from both publishers and supervisors wanting to work with and license their tracks in the last two weeks. More than anyone else I work with. And it’s really simple. They’re f$%·$king phenomenal and as a result doors are opening left and right. They also recently signed a record deal. Big things are happening. Even though “great” music is subjective and certainly open for debate, there are bands and artists I work with where there seems to be a definite consensus in the industry as to their greatness. There is a collective agreement on what makes something great. Different people in different places that…

Copyrighting Your Music

Copyrighting Your Music   In 1870, Congress passed a law moving registration of copyrights from the federal courts to the Library of Congress. In 1897, Thorvald Solberg became the first Register of Copyrights and served in that capacity until 1930. Today, the Library of Congress is still the place to go to register your copyright. Technically your songs and lyrics are protected by copyright as soon as it is created and “fixed” in a tangible form such as a recording, or in the case of lyrics written down. However proving in a court of law that you created something, in the unlikely event that you would need to, is a different matter. To fully protect your rights in a court of law it is vitally important to register your work with the U.S. Copyright Office, which is part of the Library of Congress. Having done that, you get a certificate of registration and your work is a matter of public record. Then, if someone ever tries to claim authorship for a composition that you created you have a legally acceptable proof of authenticity that the work is yours. To register, you need to submit the correct application form, a non-refundable…

The Basics of Laptop Repair – Dealing with Sticky Keys By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy   Most people don’t think about laptop repair until they actually began to suffer a malfunction. Perhaps you were typing at your laptop’s keyboard some night and suddenly noticed that the keys on your keyboard began to stick, resulting in lines of characters appearing in the middle of your text. If this has happened to you, there’s no need to worry about it. Replacing a laptop’s keyboard may not be as easy as replacing a desktop PC’s keyboard, but it’s not that difficult either. You may not have known of this before (or perhaps you did), but most of the electronics goods on the market today are all made in China. This means that no matter what company claims credit for your keyboard, it still means that it was made according to the same manufacturing norms. This means that all keyboards use more or less the same principles, and therefore are all relatively easy to replace. The first step in laptop repair is to turn off the power. I know it seems rather silly to mention this, but, on the other…

How To Create Success In The Music Licensing Industry   Do you sometimes feel a little lost as you’re pursuing a career in music? Do you get confused as to what steps to take to move forward in your career? Do you wish there was some sort of a map or a formula that you could follow that would guarantee success? The music industry is much different than more traditional career paths in that there really isn’t a clear path to take that will guarantee success. It’s not like becoming a doctor or a lawyer where you go to medical or law school, study hard, rack up debt in student loans and at the end become a doctor or lawyer. The music industry is much different in that you have to find your own path. What works for others that have come before you might not work for you. You have to find your own way. However, just because there aren’t guarantees that doesn’t mean there aren’t things you can do that will greatly increase your chances of finding success. One way you can gain massive leverage is by simply taking action, consistently, every day. So for example, in the…

Changing Your Hard Drive and Other Aspects of Laptop Repair
Blog / 03/11/2014

Changing Your Hard Drive and Other Aspects of Laptop Repair By Thomas James, Author of Laptop Repair Made Easy   The very term laptop repair seems to make many people hesitate. The average person seems to think that laptops are the holy grail of computing, and thus must not be repaired by hands unsanctified by a technician’s professional course. But the simple fact of the matter is that in most cases of laptop repair, the technician’s professional course is just a device to help him take money from you. Most laptops today are extremely modular and rather elementary to repair, and to pay a technician to repair them in most cases is a blatant waste of money that can be better spent in taking your girlfriend out to dinner (just an example). Don’t give the technician money that can be better spent on the people you love. Instead, enhance your girlfriend’s (or wife’s) devotion to yourself by learning the arcane secrets of laptop repair. But jokes aside, much of laptop repair is really quite elementary, and it’s a waste of money to pay someone else to do something that you can just as easily do yourself in a few moments….
