This Band Checklist has been prepared by an attorney licensed to practice in the State of California under California laws. If you are a resident of another state besides California, the laws of your state may differ from those reflected in this Band Checklist and you should retain an attorney in your state to advise you on the best procedures for your band.
The purpose of this Band Checklist is to organize and anticipate the tasks bands need to do in order to properly set themselves up to do business as a band. It is impossible, however, to anticipate all issues that may be related bands or doing business as a band, and this template Band Checklist does not cover or purport to cover every issue that a creator(s) or artist(s) might encounter. The template also is general and is drafted to address basic issues and tasks, not specific scenarios. This template (and Indie Artist Resource, www.indieartistresource.com, and Erin M. Jacobson, Esq.) do not purport to provide and are not providing you with legal advice or acting as your attorney. If you would like advice about the ownership of your intellectual property, you should consult with a lawyer licensed in your state who can give advice directed specifically to your needs and issues. California residents may purchase a separate consultation through Indie Artist Resource.
