The following links are culled from our experiences on the WWW, and submitted for your approval . . . We've found information on registering trademarks, acquired credit card merchant service, downloaded copyright forms, and gotten products for inexpensive prices -- all right here, right now, without leaving the building!

As a music organization, we've focused on entries that will be relevent to musicians, music business professionals, and music lovers. We've got the links to many professional music organizations, performing rights societies, music retailers and manufacturers, music business resources, and to some of our favorite performers.

Rounding out the list are links about software and computer resources, the environment/population, sites of the day, and other harmless daliances...

This list was recently pruned on November 2, 2001. I must say that it's sad how many of the cool links that were on this list were no longer available. I guess the web has grown up...I'll look for some more cool stuff for you folks as soon as I can!

Jes' sit back and enjoy the ride! - Reed
