rights of minors

Post by cliffthorne » Tue Oct 14, 2008 6:17 pm

My son is 16 years old and his songwriting has come to the attention of a local recording studio/production company. What rights does he have as a minor and can he assign/ trade his copyright to a third party at his age?

Thanks in advance. Cliff.

As far as I am aware, his age would not place any real restrictions. The only thing is you would probably also need to sign any contracts/agreements as his legal guardian.
