ADDITIONALLY - There are going to be additional instrumental mixes of my instrumental tracks made widely available and for a limited time I will be "Featuring" guest guitarists, musicians and any one who loves playing music. It is understood that these guests are not to:
- Register a copyright to the US Library of congress (or any governmental authority) of the Tom Atkins Band Instrumental music. It's already been copyrighted and publishing rights secured. Please note that claiming ownership of our music (basically claiming that Tom Atkins Band music is now "your" music) exposes you to a legal vulnerability. I strongly advise you not to do that, it may not be in my control to not collect a fairly expensive fee for that, and I DO NOT WANT TO WASTE MY TIME WITH THAT, but for this to work in the future, you really need to NOT register my music as yours.
- What is specifically being waived is any third party claim against you as to who has ownership of your performance over our music. By performing and displaying your awesome talents, whatever they may be, and performing on Tom Atkins Band instrumental music, either on YouTube or any video platform (vimeo etc.), we are allowing you to use our music for that expressed promotional purpose. It helps both of us for more people to hear you, and for more people to hear us. We only ask that you: please include the following info somewhere in your published format:

- Accept that Karma is real. I am excited to make music. I don't like the "I wrote this" and "I wrote that" aspect of any discussion. Just make some music. Have some fun. We don't claim to own your performance, so please don't claim that you own our instrumental or non instrumental tracks. Lets make some music together. We will happily feature your performance on our video channels, facebook pages, social media whatevers, Spotify and/or iTunes playlists, whatever is available. In fact a playlist is ready and waiting!!
We will also happily celebrate any info you feel like sharing about your creative process, how you developed your ideas, or just whatever you want to share.
