Song Share Agreement

Updated: 03 October 2023 | 12:32 PM

Musicians are strongly advised to obtain written confirmation of all engagements. The MU produces Standard Contracts for music co-writers.

This standard agreement sets out the names and addresses of the music co-writers, the name(s) of the song(s), each co-writer's share in the song(s) and whether that share is respect of words only, music only, or words and music.
