Hey, Tami! Found your "5 types of Publishing Deals Offered" randomly on YouTube and I will continue watching your videos! Thanks so much!
I was wondering if you can have more than one music licenses? For example; I signed a Mechical License deal -- can I have an admin deal, then a sync deal for the new Justice Legue Movie (haha). Thanks again for the videos! I'm going share these with other songwriters!
yes, they are two separate deals.
Hello Tami. If I write a song with someone else aside from the producer and say my contribution was minimal so I received 15% of the songwriters split. Does one person actually register the copyright or all parties involved?Tami LaTrell responded on 08/20/2016 Next question
Thank you very much for your videos. They're very helpful.
I was previously a manager for several artists outside the US and never had to deal with copyrights, split sheets, etc., but now that I moved to the US and just started managing an artist here, I'm trying to understand a couple of items I'm confused about.
1. There is a producer who created a beat for a song that one of his friends wrote. This producer says the song is his because his friend wrote it for him, so, if I want the song (including the beat) for my artist can I just sign a split sheet with the producer and list him as the writer or do I need to get the writer involved? Is it my responsibility? If the writer were to come after us in the future wouldn't it be the producer's responsibility because he's taking credit as the writer in the split sheet?
2. Me being the manager. How do I get my share of the income that will be coming through the different streams (i.e.ASCAP) if my company's name won't be in the split sheets?
