Young musicians often sign away their rights in return for a record deal, but not forever.

“In Europe, if you do not release a sound recording or a live recording within 50 years of it’s making, then you lose all your copyright rights..."

American law is friendlier to artists...“After 35 years, eligible authors can serve notice and get their rights back. At the end of the day, they give the artist a second bite of the apple.”

A new collaboration between Tuskegee University and the City of Montgomery is about to get underway.

An announcement was made Tuesday regarding plans to build an off-campus learning center in Montgomery called the Tuskegee University Urban Agriculture Innovation Center.

The outdoor classroom will be built at the site of the old Carlton McLendon Furniture factory on Grady Street, near the intersection of Mobile Street and the 5-points area of downtown Montgomery. It’s part of the TU College of Agriculture’s signature Urban Outreach and Extension program.

Sports Forum / Are the California Angels getting a new stadium?
« on: Yesterday at 05:03:46 PM »
In his first public comments on the stadium deal approved by the Anaheim City (Calif.) Council in December, Angels owner Arte Moreno said he has not decided whether he would replace Angel Stadium or renovate it.

SRB Management, a company affiliated with Moreno, agreed to buy the 153-acre site — the stadium and the surrounding parking lots — for $325 million. The city would like the development to include parkland and affordable housing, and would consider reducing the final sales price as an incentive.
