    I'm a rap producer - I produce instrumentals for artists to rap to.

    How does one get to be a producer like for say Jermaine Dupri, Timbaland, for example. Where do you start?

    Also, how do you protect against people 'biting' my beats? [trying to duplicate it and call it their own] How do I copyright?

    Are there any sites with like guides for rap producers [tips/advice/tutorials/etc]? Because this industry seems so foreign to me how/what things go on just because you have a simple beat someone can rap to.

    I'm 17 with about 60-70 beats.
     
  2. I don't know how much help this stuff will be, but have a look at these:

    http://www.loc.gov/copyright/

    http://www.recordproduction.com/index.htm

    http://www.nmpa.org/hfa/faq_general.html

    http://www.studiocovers.com/articles19.htm

    There.

    That'll keep you busy till someone who knows more than I do comes along.

    Good luck,

    Monty
