"Many Labels that have you signed up for worldwide rights won't take you there until you get a certain amount of sales in the US or their home country. Beware of this as your fan base may be bigger elsewhere but your label won't go there so have some type of language in your agreement that gives you some freedom to go worldwide. "

"Make sure you negotiate that your fan info like emails, zip, etc is your property and not the labels"
