Sample Agreement

Music Commission Agreement for Podcast

This sample Music Commission Agreement for Podcast should be used when a podcast producer wants to commission a composer/musician/band to create music for use in a podcast. More specifically, under the agreement the person composing the music grants the producer the rights to make a recording of a musical composition, provided it is used as part of the podcast as agreed in the agreement. If the producer wants to use existing music only, Arts Law’s sample Music & Sound Recording Licence for Podcast is more appropriate.

This sample agreement includes the most common terms that the producer and the composer need to consider and agree to upon to form a legally binding contract.

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.
