Coe Ramsey to Speak at DIY Musician Conference
Coe Ramsey, a partner in the Raleigh office of Brooks Pierce, will participate in a panel discussion called “Give the People What They Want: Playing Covers with Dignity” on Saturday, Oct. 1 at the DIY Musician Conference in Chicago.
Ramsey will discuss the function and role of the American Society of Composers, Artists and Publishers (ASCAP); Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI); and the Society of European Stage Authors and Composers (SESAC) in the music industry. He will also speak about how to license cover recordings, the parameters of a compulsory mechanical license and the legal distinctions between a “cover” band and a “tribute” band.
The DIY Musician Conference is being held from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2 and is geared toward helping musicians learn how to promote themselves and build their fan base.
