COPYRIGHT 101: NEVER STOP LEARNING!

Nashville, TN-Musician, Songwriter, Producer, Jason Hollis wanted to talk about something that he’s learning more about almost on a daily basis, Copyrighting your songs.  “I grew up in the 80’s and in the 90’s when I recorded music and toured for a living full-time and I had no idea what publishing, copyrighting, muchless how to read a contract.  Well, I’ve learned a lot since then and I wanted to share my findings” says Jason Hollis.  First, when copyrighting your songs go to the Library Of Congress website: www.loc.gov from there click on US Copyright Office which will take you to www.copyright.gov.  Next, click on Register a copyright and then click on Performing Arts Music, Lyrics, Sound Recordings, Scripts, and Stage Plays.  Once on this page it gives you a list of catagories that generally are used under Performing Arts.  Recently, Jason and his songwriting partner went to go  copyright ten new songs; after calling and researching on the website; they found that the  first step to take is to copyright the songs themselves by choosing the option of Works of Performing Arts or PA as most industry folks like to call it.  Secondly, if you are recording a project or album to put out as a physical or digital format you’ll need to go back in to protect the copyright of the “Sound Recording.” “This was news to me! I had never fully understood this portion of the copyright laws.  As soon as I learned about this portion of the business as a songwriter I knew that I had to share my newfound knowledge with others.  I just really want to share my findings along the way so that others behind me can learn. I’m sure that there’s a lot more that I’ll learn going forward and I want to caution you all; I’ve been in the music industry most of my life and I’m still learning new things all the time!  So never stop learning and I hope this sheds some light on Copyrighting songs.  God bless you all.” said Jason Holls.

JASON HOLLIS WRITING FIRST BOOK ABOUT MARRIAGE

MARRIAGE WEBNashville, TN-Owner of Life-Line Worldwide, Jason Hollis is working on his first book about Marriage. In his own words, Jason Hollis had this to say about the new book “This book started around four years ago when God placed on my heart to write about the subject of marriage; before you get married this is what you need to know.  Everything started there and with the busyness of life time was going by without getting anything done with the book. I’m finally starting in 2016 to really get it into book writing and the whole creative process of it.  It is definitely a journey to really rack my brain thinking back to the first few years of marriage and really pinpoint the problems that my wife and I had; then sharing them with the world. It’s a big step to share about your own life, but I pray that this book will speak to many people of all ages about the need for good communication, intimacy, and above everything else having a relationship with your spouse that is moving forward into where God is calling the both of us. We are learning to hear God clearly and know His voice for ourselves and our marriage.”  There are plans to have the book published as well as have an audio version of the book when it is completed.  The workng title so far is “Marriage: The Story Of Love…Expect The Unexpected” it will have some amazing stories from friends and family as well as Jason Hollis’ own testimony about walking through the fires of life to get to the other side in marriage.  This book is written from a man who has been broken, had an encounter with God, and has a marriage that is a continual work in process but has been redeemed by the blood of Christ.
