Twenty More Questions for Artists: Record producer agreements, Part 1

Music Technology Policy

Recording Fund or Recording Budget and Advance : Producers have “fixed” and “contingent” compensation. Fixed” compensation refers to an advance against royalties, and “contingent compensation” is a royalty (or more accurately, a share of your royalties) on sales or license fees of the recordings they produce. It’s called “fixed” because the advance is a fixed amount you pay “up front”, and it’s called “contingent” because the royalty is contingent on sales or license fees.

Beware – Using Online Photos and Videos in Radio and TV Productions and on Websites Can Bring Lawsuits for Copyright Infringement if Rights are Not Secured in Advance

Broadcast Law Blog

But, as we wrote here , fair use is a tricky defense , and how a court may view any particular instance of the use of a copyrighted work without permission cannot be determined with certainty in advance. There may be other defenses available as well, but the best defense against a copyright claim is to have the rights in advance so that you never face the claim in the first instance.

Remember—if it’s an advance, it’s recoupable from somebody’s money, and one way or another, if you’re the artist and there’s an advance, it’s usually recoupable from yours. In the case of producer royalties, there’s usually only two kinds of payments that get recouped: advances and also what I call the “bad boy payments”, such as unexcused overbudget, indemnity claims (like for uncleared samples or outright lying) or union penalties for late or no filing of session reports.
