Augustana alumnus, Steven Hansen (BA Music ’05), will present a public lecture on Music and the Law.

What are the rights of a musician who composes music? What is the relationship between copyright and royalties? What does it mean to get a “record deal”?

In addition to answering these questions, Steven will discuss the fundamental legal concepts of the music industry and the types of legal relations that musicians often enter into with industry partners.
Whether you are a solo musician, a member of an ensemble, or simply interested in learning more about the music industry, you should attend this presentation!
