Accessing my original writing and music gives you the right to read it, tell your friends about it and/or sing / play / quote it with appropriate accreditations (ie you need to acknowledge to your audience that I wrote it, and also tell them where you got access to it- that means you have to say something like ‘written / music composed by C. A. Lawrence, www.pondripples.com’).
It does NOT give you the right to pass it off as your own. Okay? You want some help with your own writing/composing, email me at ****** and we’ll talk. Don’t just grab, it’s NASTY.
It would also be appreciated if you let me know if you’re going to perform my stuff in public- not so I can hit you for more bucks, but so I can feel all warm an’ fuzzy inside. (Of course, if you should happen to wish to contribute to my retirement fund after performing my stuff makes you a millionaire… PayPal will accept donations well into multiple figures.)
LEGAL STUFF- I promise not to bore you
Now listen, you lot- if some radically right-wing aboriginal-bashing child-stealing audience member should take exception to my sentiments and brain you for your trouble after you read ‘Someone Else’s Mother’ in public (or similar personally damaging contretemps), I take no responsibility whatsoever. Your problem, brother! (I will, however, agree to abuse your abuser in writing- playing to my strengths… just kidding.) You take my work, you take responsibility for what you do with it (which includes getting to know my solicitor rather too well if you put your name on it). There Is No Comeback. Okay?
