Part Three of the Songwriters Law Seminar focuses on songwriters that are also recording artists. This part explores the interplay between songwriting, publishing deals, and recording contracts – examining the differences in copyright protection between musical compositions (songs) and sound recordings (masters), highlighting the impact of the controlled composition clause of a recording agreement on a songwriter’s publishing, and looking to the role of the “360 deal”  on the future of music publishing (if any).
