Exclusive Recording Contract
This exclusive recording contract is a useful agreement for a label looking to engage an artist exclusively for a number of years, both as a performer and in relation to his/her songs. Read More.
The exclusivity applies to both the Artist (as a recording and performing musician) and to the songs written by the Artist during the term of the agreement. An additional number of songs written prior to the term are also assigned in the agreement. The exclusivity in respect to the Artist applies for the length of the agreement and in respect to the songs for the life of copyright (unless otherwise agreed).
The term is sub-divided in option periods which are exercised by the label one at a time according to sales performance of the records.
The Territory is specified as the ‘world and the universe’ and the income from sales is divided in equal parts after certain agreed costs, expenses and advances are recouped by the label (net receipts).
The label promises to fund, release and promote a number of recordings and the artist promises to record and deliver such recordings and to make themselves available for promotion activities.
Useful agreement for a label looking to engage an artist exclusively for a number of years, both as a performer and in relation to his/her songs.
