“There’s two copyrights in the music business. It’s a 200% system. There’s 100% of the master, and 100% of the song. The copyright of the master: You go in the recording studio and you make a record and that’s a copyright of the master recording. Then there’s the copyright of the song. Usually the song is copyrighted first. That’s copyrighted by the publishing usually. Some songwriters copyright their own. There’s the song and then there’s the master. They’re both different copyrights. You can own the master and not own the publishing. You can own the publishing and not own the master. I always like to own both.”
