360 Record Deal Mock Negotiation: Ment, Cooper in LA
360 Record Deal Mock Negotiation: Ment, Cooper in LA
$39.95 – $75.00
Sabrina Ment, Esq. (left) and Todd Cooper, Esq. 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.
With major changes in recording agreements over the past three years, multiple rights or “360 deals” have become more common. In this latest installment of NARIP’s “Art of the Music Deal” series, two top music business attorneys and an artist manager face off in a live negotiation of key deal points and contractual issues that affect an artist’s rights and income, and a record company’s ability to acquire and monetize additional rights.
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.
Most importantly, you will hear HOW a 360 deal is negotiated and be involved in the process.
