Ramsey Presents at Triangle Game Conference
Brooks Pierce attorney Coe Ramsey presented “Sound Games: Music Licensing and Gaming” at the Triangle Game Conference in Raleigh in April.
The session covered the basics of music copyright law and the various legal requirements for using music in games.
Coe explored master and mechanical licenses, website music licenses, game score composer agreements, royalties for music-based games, "royalty-free" music, promotional uses, and streaming licenses for game music internet radio stations.
In addition to representing radio and television stations on music licensing matters, Coe's music and entertainment clients include bands, musicians, singers, songwriters, record companies, music producers, re-mixers, disc jockeys, video disc jockeys, and other artists.
Coe's passion for broadcasting and music stems from his previous years of experience in the industry.
Before becoming an attorney, Coe worked as a radio station mix show disc jockey, as a mobile and nightclub disc jockey, and as a re-mixer / music producer. His re-mixes have been played on radio stations and in night clubs around the world.
As a hobby, Coe operates and programs an internet radio station featuring his mixes of current dance music.
