Accompanying Notes

Clause 1.3: The Composer (or sometimes the Producer) has to arrange for the use of pre existing music that is incorporated in the soundtrack and arrange and pay for licences to use any such music.

Clause 3: A Composer cannot assign his/her right to receive payment from PRS and they remain the beneficiaries of any income paid to the PRS, which is a collection society for musicians. The Composer must specifically grant the right to allow the music to be played in sync with the film. This is a specific right. This agreement only allows the Producer to use the music for this purpose and does NOT allow the Producer to publish the music.

Clause 5: This gives the Producer the ability to take any legal action to prevent a third party using the music for their film if the Composer does not agree to do so.

Clause 6: A “further assurance” clause is used in contracts where a grant or licence of rights is made. This ensures the producer has all the necessary documents to perfect their right or interests in the licence or grant of rights.

Clause 7.12: A Composer will often get a royalty from any records made whether the Producer acts as the music publisher or whether they negotiate a deal with a third party. This royalty obligation must be made clear to any publisher as the Producer is primarily liable under this type of agreement to make any such payment to the Composer.

Clause 7.3: Mechanical royalties are paid to MCPS and are due when the records are sold.

Clause 8.1: The Composer gets a proportion of the royalty rate according to the proportion of his/her music incorporated on the recording i.e. if there were 6 tracks and only 3 were the Composer’s music he/she would get half the royalty.

Clause 8.3: If the Producer assigns the Composer’s agreement to a third party (i.e the distributor/financier) and under it’s deal it gets a lower Royalty Rate then the Composer agrees to accept that lower rate.

Clause 8.4: The Composer is given the chance to arrange the music for any record produced.
