You know what day it is!

Todays freebie is Legal 101, where we give you just a few links and resources that relate to some common issues that artists face. It includes topics such as copy right, fair use, lawyers, and contracts. We know legal matters can be quite intimidating, so we hope this can give some you some confidence to protect yourself as an artist.
