ART OF THE MUSIC DEAL:
What Happens Before You $ign on the Dotted Line?
Showdown! Mock Negotiation of
a Music Publishing Deal
on Thursday, January 17, 2013 in Los Angeles
In this latest installment of NARIP’s “Art of the Music Deal” series, two top experts face off in a live negotiation of key deal points and contractual issues in a publishing deal that affect a songwriter’s rights and income.
These experts come together to give you the inside track on major deal points, what they mean and what leverage you have to negotiate the best possible deal.
Most people think they can just hand a negotiation to a lawyer, and leave it at that. But as a professional, you need to be aware of the process and deal points, too, and what the short- and long-term implications to your artists’ careers may be.
NARIP’s series de-mystifies deal-making and enables the lawyer and non-lawyer alike to come away with a clear grasp of the most important deal points and leverage available. Infinitely better than merely READING about it, see the deal duked out and DONE right before your eyes.
Most importantly, you will see HOW a publishing deal is negotiated and be involved in the process.
Get educated about the art of deal-making!
You will learn major areas of negotiation for publishing deals including:
- Songwriter development
- Sources and types of income
- Collection & division of income
- Filing copyright notices
- Show me the money! How to ensure effective catalog administration.
This program will also cover:
- Important deal points including digital royalties, a discussion of the new publishing royalty rates for mobile, digital downloads, and interactive streaming services.
- The right time to make a deal
- Publishing deals for developing songwriters
Sample music publishing agreement will be provided.
