Subject: RE: Sign on the dotted line Kid!

I don't think asking legal advice in Internet forums about folk music is very sane.

The point I've been trying to make in all these threads is that musicians need to educate themselves, pay lawyers their well-deserved fees for helping us negotiate good contracts, and join the MU or other unions for the benefits they can provide to freelancers.

If you aren't willing to do that, and refuse to learn from the mistakes of others in this regard (like Nic Jones) then you won't get much sympathy from me...
