2. Copyright laws. Copyright laws are designed to protect content creator's rights to make a living from their creations. Copyright holders (that would be Kit Holmes, in this case) have exclusive right to say where their creations are performed, shared and used.
3. Kit Holmes is a working musician, performing songwriter and content creator. She works her ass off trying to make a living doing these things. If you like her songs and want to perform them or use her recordings in any way that benefits you and/or your bottom line, honor her (and the law) by ASKING her FIRST if you can cover or use her tunes. She loves getting to know the folks who want to sing her songs and share her message. It's an affirming honor for her. A short email to email@example.com is the quickest way to take care of it.
Want to record your performance of Kit's songs on a CD or other fixed/transferrable audio or video file format? You MUST contact Kit Holmes Music (firstname.lastname@example.org) to obtain a mechanical and/or sync license*. This is non-negotiable.
