Posté le: Mer 13 Déc - 13:46 (2017) Sujet du message: Copyright in an exclusive library agreement
So I’m considering joining an exclusive library, and one of the stipulations of the agreement is that they will control all rights to the music, including copyright, in perpetuity.
First question: What does it actually mean to give up copyright when the library is already exclusive and in perp? How does this differ from a library that does not ask for copyright but is also exclusive and in perp?
Secondly: Let’s say I am able to negotiate a reversion clause into the agreement. How is the copyright affected by any songs that revert back to me?
And lastly: When they say all rights, that also includes mechanical rights. What does this mean for my mechanical royalties? In other words, if they sell an album with my song on it, will I still get mechanical royalties as the writer? Or does it mean they somehow decide whether I get mechanical royalties or not?
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
