 “I think some of the mistakes I’ve seen songwriters do where they might get into a deal that is not beneficial to them or they may be very much in need of money, and they might do a deal without reading the deal or seeing what the repercussions of the deal down the line. So later on down the line, they suddenly realize they can't get their copyrights back or they've signed away a much higher percentage than they should have.”
