June 25, 2011 by Edward Elkins

Whether you are starting a band and looking for the final member or you have been in a band since high school, you would be protecting your current and future interests in music by entering into a band agreement. Music and Entertainment law has been shaped by many famous bands suing each other as a result of conflicts that may have been avoided had the band entered into an agreement stating the band member’s rights and obligations.

When entering into a band agreement, there are many things you must consider.

  1. Who may use the name of the band in performances in the event that the band breaks up?
  2. How are royalties from songs to be shared?
  3. Who may play the band’s songs after the band has broken up?

These are just a few of the many factors you should consider when entering into a band agreement. A Florida entertainment lawyer  will be able to assist you in drafting a music contract in the form of a band agreement. Always remember- the most important thing about a band agreement is that one exists in writing!
