beginning Tuesday: license agreements primer


OK, gang! We’ve devoted a good long stretch of posts to laying out the fundamentals of copyright law in our copyright primer. What you learned along the way will come in very handy as we dive into our next series on license agreements.

Before we launch that series, I thought it would be helpful to tell you more about why we do what we do, the way we do it, here at F13. Our goal from the outset has been to help artists help themselves—to work behind the scenes of your business rather than to speak for you—because we believe you will be most effective with your business when you feel empowered to trust your own vision, wisdom and voice.

We believe you can trust your innate intelligence, your faith in your ideas, your willingness to do the work, the momentum of your passion, and your own good common sense to achieve big and exciting things.

We believe that your business will be stronger when you have the knowledge and the confidence to lead it on all levels.

And we believe that deep down in your bones, you know you can do this. Even when it comes to things that some people might still say an artist isn’t capable of handling, like negotiating her own business agreements.

We know that sometimes you will need information, advice, or just encouragement. You’ll want someone in your corner who deeply understands what you want to achieve and has the experience to effectively guide and support you, in a tailored and targeted way, to help you take the next big leap with your business. That’s what we’re here to do.

So, beginning Tuesday, we’ll break down the why, the what and the how of license agreements, one of the most common forms of business contracts you’ll want to have command of as you build your brand and confidently navigate your own business path. We’re excited to get started!

Until then, don’t be a stranger! Check in, say hello. Let us know what you think of the content so far and what you’d like us to explore in future posts. Thanks for following and thanks for sharing!
