where can I download contracts?
Can anybody tell me where I can find a good recording contract to sign an artist onto my label? Thanks for your time and help.
check out musiccontracts.com I've had good experience with them, and they have most of what you are looking for. Well worth the 20$ or so for the contract as opposed to about 300$ in attorney fees. :)
I'm an independent record company about to sign my first artist, would you recommend the "traditional royalty" or "net profit" contract?
Depends how much faith you have in your artist. I would imagine that for a newcomer, try to get as much money refunded before you put the cd on sale. Then decide on the royalties depending on how much you are in the red so far. If they cannot pay for anything, net profit would be your best bet.
But I'm sure someone else would have more insight in this....
