Copy This Podcast Episode 7: A New Kind of CEO: Creators In The Digital Age

In the seventh episode of Copy This, Kirby Ferguson sits down with YouTube superstar Peter Hollens to find out what it takes to be a successful a cappella singer and online entrepreneur in today’s digital world. It turns out, there is much more to being an digital star than just creating music.

Hollens may have started out as a one man shop, but today he’s a YouTube cover artist with more than 1.5 million subscribers and successful small business owner with more than 25 employees. On top of a lot of hard work and passion, Hollens relies on many types of platforms including YouTube, Patreon, Musical.ly, Live.ly, Houseparty, Facebook and Instagram to connect and collaborate with fans and other artists. He credits his online creative and entrepreneurial success to the protections of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and its safe harbors for making it all possible.

Tune in to hear more about how balanced copyright empowers Peter Hollens and other online creators to make a living doing what they love.
