Simple Musician Work For Hire Agreement

“It`s not just people who play instruments,” she says. “They are also engineers and production workers, and even the engineer`s assistant, if this assistant contributes to the project. It is the standard and the right form to get work for hire agreements from anyone who touches the project while it is being done. “The people you work with may have a high level of professionalism, and you know they would never sue you,” says Kattwinkel, “but there`s always a risk you take if you don`t ask people to sign WFH agreements because things can change.” C. In the event that this contract is terminated as a result of a violation of this agreement by Artist, The Company (Work-for-hire Co.) has the right, in addition to any other claims it may have against the artist, to complete the work of art either itself or by the services of a third party, and to charge the artist any costs incurred. 8. PARNIFICATION Artist undertakes to compensate, compensate and retain company (Work-for-hire Co.), its executives, directors, agents and employees free of all expenses, expenses and losses (including legal fees and reasonable costs) arising from third-party claims against the Company (Work-for-hire Co.) due to a violation of all representation and guarantee by Artist. WHEREAS, Company (Work-for-hire Co.) wishes to retain the services of the artist to develop certain works of art for characters that will be used by Company (Work-for-hire Co.). (project) in a video game that is developed with the title [name] (game), as described in more detail in Appendix “A”; B. Artist undertakes to cooperate fully with Company (Work-for-hire Co.) to pursue such an action, and Company (Work-for-hire Co.) reimburses any previously authorized costs it may incur as a result of such a collaboration. Kattwinkel says that if WFH works as an independent musician, it can come at any time to participate in a recording project.

So whether you`re a backing singer or session bassist, synthesis programmer or thong arranger, don`t be surprised if you`re asked to check and sign a WFH deal. Once you hear the words “work for lease,” you might think that these legal documents do not apply to a serious artist like you. But on the contrary, a lease job can protect you if you`re working on a song, performing in a place or hiring a fellow musician to work with you.
