COPYRIGHTING MOVEMENT IS ABOUT PUTTING POWER BACK IN THE ARTIST'S HANDS
Beyonce and Megan Thee Stallion's choreographer, JaQuel Knight, has made history...again!
Knight became the first commercial choreographer in Pop music to copyright his dance moves back in 2020 after successfully registering his iconic Single Ladies choreography.
In an exclusive story by Variety, JaQuel now takes it a step further by launching Knight Choreography and Music Publishing Inc. The company will broker licensing deals and protect I.P.s, the same way music
publishers do, except K.C.A.M.P. will oversee the rights to Knight's dance moves.
Knight told Variety, "Copyrighting movement is about putting the power back in the artist's hands. We set a historical precedent with our 'Single Ladies' copyright achievement, and we are thrilled to be launching Knight Choreography & Music Publishing, Inc. so that the next generation of artists are afforded the same platform, resources, and tools to thrive, creatively and financially, in the commercial music industry."
This is excellent news for TikTok creators.
Congrats to JaQuel!
