As a Kindle eBook author, how terrified should I be of Kindle Unlimited?

A few months ago I started selling kinky eBooks for the Kindle, and it's been great. I'm paying my rent doing something I enjoy! But tonight I read this Salon.com article, and it's scary as hell. Amazon is reportedly testing Kindle Unlimited, a service allowing readers to download unlimited books for a flat monthly fee. I've spent hours tonight trying to determine how this will affect self-publishers. Can anybody walk me through the likely scenarios, and talk me down from this panic attack? [more inside]

When new guitarist rewrites old guitarist's parts, who owns what?

A founding member of my 5 piece band was kicked out this summer, and we are going to rewrite 80% of his parts when we rerecord. We didn't like the old guitar parts and helped him write some of them, which is the main reason we wanted to part ways. He is now asking for equal ownership of the composition of songs originating from his tenure, and claiming that it is industry standard for the new guitarist who contributes new guitar compositions to get nothing. This seems very bizarre to me, but is he right? We all own an equal share of publishing and masters on songs that are already released.

How much do successful, but not megasuccessful, musicians make?

I'm curious about the real-world economics of being a musician who "made it" but is not, say, Sir Elton John or Bruce Springsteen or Jay-Z. For instance, how's James McNew, bassist of the incomparable Yo La Tengo, doing? Is Ken Bethea, guitarist for the Old 97's, comfortable? Ian Matthews, drummer for Kasabian, are you sorted for a comfortable retirement? [more inside]

How do I get the rights to make a play into a film?

I want to turn a short play into a short film. If completed, it'll be a low-budget affair seen at a few festivals and hopefully online; the play was first performed in 1990 and the playwright is still alive. How do I go about getting the rights to film his play, or see if I can even think about affording it?

Hey I made that logo! Hey...I gave it away.

I do PowerPoint design for a living. About a year ago, I had a client who was starting a new business and, for his presentation, I did a whole bunch of original, hand-drawn illustrations. Shortly after, he asked (via email) if the work I did to date was work-for-hire and that he owned the images. Due to a combination not knowing how to handle it and being too timid to push, I said Yes. So, a year later, my illustrations are on stickers, hung on the office walls, on the company blog and website, and one of my illustrations is the company logo. I know...nothing I can do about it now and it's my own fault. The question is this: Now, he's come back to me to work on this year's presentation. I'm guessing it will use some of the old illustrations and he'll want some new ones. How should I handle it? Just do it as work-for-hire again and be happy I have work? Tell him work-for-hire is a higher rate? Tell him I want royalties on new illustrations used in non-powerpoint ways? The only thing I really don't want to do is just let him roll over me because I'm too timid to speak up again.

Music podcast legalities help

I have, over the past several years, become the individual that lots of people come to for music suggestions and to talk about music (most metal, but some other stuff). Much like the fine folks at Pandora. So I had the great thought of starting a podcast. However: Mayhaps I'm missing something, but I can't find anything online that spells out how to start a music podcast legally. (More after the jump) [more inside]

Cash from syndication rights

TelevisionSyndicationFilter - According to the entry on Wikipedia, television syndication is "where the real money is" when it comes to producing TV shows (particularly, off network syndication).
