This Single Song Songwriting Agreement is made by and between a music publisher and a songwriter (with or without other co-writers) for one specific composition. If more than one song is going to be covered between the parties, a separate agreement should be used for each song.
The publisher will want at least 50% of the copyright transferred to it, as well as 100% of the administration rights. The publisher will receive up to 100% of the publisher’s share; an additional administration fee may also be charged. The respective rights will last for the duration of the copyright.
Along with this Agreement, the user is advised to simultaneously complete and date the Assignment Of Copyright in connection with each song copyright being transferred; this Assignment may be filed with the U.S. Copyright Office in lieu of filing the entire agreement and thereby exposing its terms to the general public. Either the songwriter or the publisher on behalf of songwriter may register the copyright with the Copyright Office.
This updated agreement was designed for use in All 50 States.
