Law on the Row began life as a newsletter in 1999. The name "Law on the Row" is a reference to the practice of law on Music Row, the epicenter of the entertainment business in Nashville and the first location of Shrum & Associates. The newsletter was converted to an online blog in in the mid 2000's. It features articles by Mr. Shrum, his students at Curb School of Music Business (Belmont University), associated attorneys and interns on topics ranging from activities of our clients, events on Music Row, Nashville, technology and gadgets reviews, entertainment law, copyright and trademark law, and other important legal issues. We hope you enjoy perusing the various categories and reading our opinions on these various items.
