I just saw a fabulous video, appropriate for teachers,musicians, and even children, about what happens when we copy creative works. While it might seem somewhat self-serving to blog about this, I will tell you that composers especially get so little of the money made from music that sometimes it’s completely un-motivating to write anything! If you want to know what makes what in the print music business, read this post: Who Makes What in Music Publishing

In the meantime, I hope you’ll share this adorable video with your students, family, friends, and other teachers!

And thank you to all of you who don’t copy copyrighted music! You help me and many others in the publishing industry to make a modest living.
