Law 2510 - Contract Drafting in the Music Business

The purpose of this course is to provide the student with a practical understanding of drafting contracts through the drafting/redrafting/review of (i) a recording/performing/singer/songwriter’s recording agreement with its record label (a “recording agreement”), (ii) that artist’s agreement with one of its music producer (a “producer agreement”), (iii) that artist’s agreement with its manager (a “management agreement”), and (iv) that artist’s co-publishing agreement with its music publisher (“co-publishing agreement”).    By the end of the course, the student should be able to understand the material deal terms of these core agreements in the music business as well as the boilerplate provisions (and some of the key revisions to the boilerplate language) of these agreements that are common to all lawyers who draft or review contracts (not just entertainment law practitioners).
