By accident, I came across a post in another forum asking Wheres Music Attorney? Just FYI: 1. Except for rare occasions, I only hang out in this forum. 2. I prefer to respond to posts when (a) I think I can really add something of value; (b) the info Im seeing posted needs some uhm .. clarification; or (c) like now, when I have the record company lawyer on the speakerphone and Im bored with listening to his same old nonsense. Naturally, I reserve the right to dispense with any of the above referenced condition precedents Best, MA PS - I just have to say that sometimes Im just dumbfounded by the culture/thinking at the major labels. For example, I asked a lawyer to e-mail me a draft of the recording agreement we were negotiating in Microsoft Word so I could make comments to it inside the digital document itself and not have to print it out and use up 70 pages of paper. He says we never e-mail our documents and when I asked why he could only say it was company policy. My guess would be the mindset/culture of protecting their property extends to their documents. So I told him I was tired of reading blurry 70 page faxes and to send me a hard copy via mail. He says, okay. The hard copy arrives, I scan it, OCR it into a Word doc, and return it to him via e-mail with my comments inside the document. Frighteningly, he called me up and said howd you do that? I simply responded by saying and you want to lead the digital revolution of music.... Rant over.
