Product Description

Agreement under which joint owners of copyright in a particular song or songs set out the percentages of ownership and the conditions in which they are permitted to promote said songs.

In the UK joint writers are allowed to re-use lyrics or music they contributed in a song (provided there are not restrictions made by labels) but only when the portion of the work written is sufficiently distinct and identifiable from the other parts of the co-written work. This contract overrides this default and sets out that each writer own an interest in the whole copyright, not just their contribution.

Example: if two collaborators get together to write a song and one writes the lyrics and the other writes the music, either author can grant non-exclusive licenses for the entire composition (provided they pay each other their share of income) BUT neither is allowed to just pick their part of the composition and leave the other without continuing to pay their percentage of all the income if such is generated from the use of the part which the party wrote and re-used.
