Once you have found the perfect song or musician for your production and have received the green light from the artist or copyright owner, you must create a music licensing agreement. If you are a musician with the ability to sell the rights to your melody – whether you are being revoked by a music company, a television producer or an advertiser – a well-written music licensing agreement guarantees that you get your fair cut. If you get a music license agreement, you may be in trouble. Most music is copyrighted, and if you want to use a melody in a multimedia production, you have to play by the rules. Every musician has heard of artists who have lost control of their rights while their songs continue to play. A music licensing agreement protects both parties if you decide in advance whether royalties should be paid as a percentage of revenue, for a specified amount for each use or under another contract. Where will the song be used, and how long? Can it only be used in a given geographic area? Can the purchaser transfer the rights without the composer`s consent? Can the song be duplicated? You can define everything in a music license agreement. Whether your selection is a top 40 hit, golden oldie or obscure indie, this simple and flexible document can help protect your interests.
