Songwriting Agreements

By October 8, 2021 Uncategorised No Comments

The second part of the article examines the elements and benefits of an agreement between members of a band or music group on important topics such as decision-making, money sharing (including performance and recording revenues), treatment of outgoing members, and ownership of group ownership (such as name, the songs and masters of the group). As with many peculiarities of songwriting contracts, the actual language of this section will vary greatly depending on what both parties have previously agreed. As a rule, they indicate who acquires and owns copyright in the work, as well as additional rights that the publisher holds in the compositions. The contract often says that the publisher has a power of attorney over the songs on behalf of the author. Although there are many artists who only write songs for their own pleasure, songwriting can obviously be a very lucrative endeavor. .
