A review on Music Publishing Agreements
« on: June 27, 2013, 01:26:31 AM »
Any time you are working professionally in the music industry, having the right legal assistance is a key factor in finding success financially and when trying to expand your career. Whether you are planning to record and produce music or if you want to share and sell your own records, hiring an entertainment lawyer is highly recommended to keep yourself legally protected and informed at all times.

Working together with an attorney who specializes in the entertainment or music industry will give you an advantage when you are making deals or signing agreements and contracts. Because producing and selling music often involves record labels and third parties, a lawyer who is working for you can assist you with handling any music publishing agreeing you are required to sign.

These agreements vary depending on whether you are producing the music and creating it yourself or if you are planning to distribute music for another artist you are assisting. Music publishing agreements cover the foundation of the rights to the music being created as well as the details of profits and how they are split between all parties and individuals involved.

When you are working on developing a music publishing agreement, it is important to keep in mind who owns the copyright to the music and which works are being covered or copyrighted with the music publishing contract or agreement in question. It is also important to establish who has the rights to the property and the music itself. Understanding who is able to collect money, royalties and who has the power to issue licensing for the music is another factor to consider when creating a music publishing agreement.

Handling royalty splits, fees, costs and advances for the music that is being produced and sold should also be covered in any music publishing agreement to rid any possibility of a legal dispute in the future. The agreement should be comprehensible and understood by all parties who are involved with the rights of the music and the ability to earn revenue from the sale and distribution of the music themselves. Music publishing agreements may also include co-publishing contracts, purchasing agreements or may simply represent a single song agreement depending on the purpose of the contract and what has been decided between all of those involved.
