This sample Music Commission Agreement for Games should be used when a game developer wants a composer, musician or band either to create original music for use in the developer’s game or to adapt existing music into a new composition or arrangement. Under the agreement, the composer is also required to produce a sound recording of the music which the developer can then synchronise or incorporate into the game. If the developer wants to use an existing sound recording instead of commissioning a new composition, Arts Law’s sample Music Licence for Games is more appropriate.

This sample agreement includes the most common terms that the Developer and the Composer need to consider and agree to including timeframes for delivery and acceptance of the music, payment, copyright, moral rights, credit, consultation and termination. 

If the Composer is signed to a record label or music publisher, you will need to contact that label or publisher to get the appropriate contract in place. In many cases, they will have their own agreements.

NOTE: Arts Law strongly recommends legal advice be sought on the agreement you have drafted before you sign or rely upon the agreement. If the agreement is changed this may affect its legal accuracy. All changes should be checked with a lawyer. Contact us for legal advice here.
