Wrote a hit? How to protect your music.

Published by Supreme{PR} on July 30, 2020

You write a song with some friends for fun one night and years later that song suddenly becomes a hit, or gets placed in a major TV show. This sounds like a dream that soon could be a nightmare. What if your friends never put your name on the split sheet, never registered the song, used the idea and wrote a new song with it without your approval or credits on it…..I can go on and on and on about possible scenarios that unfortunately have happened too many times to too many people.

How do you make sure your rights are protected and registered and how do you make sure you get paid for the SoundCloud reposts you’ve done?

1. Register with a PRO. (Performance Rights Organization)

In the USA we have

Each PRO offers different benefits, to know more about those check out

Something to consider, you can sign up with different PRO’s based on territory, if you live in the UK but you have a lot of income from the US you can sign up with a US PRO just for the US territory. This gives you acces to a better insight in your income, and you don’t have to wait that long on international payments.

2. Split-sheets and Percentages.

When you write a song with 4 writers it doesn’t automatically mean you split is 25% equal. One of the writers might feel they did more (or less), the SoundCloud producer might want Soundcloud promotion real to take a split. There are many variations of splits, and the best way is to solidify the exact numbers right after the write, when everyone is still excited about the song. Once things start happening with a song, some people might start questioning the amount of SoundCloud reposts one of the writers did, this is just human nature, so lock it in right after the session.

Here are some fantastic apps and companies to make this process easier for you.

3. Administration

Nobody likes to do their administration, yet it’s a necessity for every songwriter. You can choose to let it pile up and till you are at the end of a year / the end of a pub deal when you suddenly need to send 100+ split sheets, co-writer names and their affiliated PRO’s and publisher names, you are going to hate your life for a while.

So, get those details squared away at the beginning / end of sessions. I made a habit of writing the cowriter names / their publishers + date of creation on top of each lyric sheet while I’m in the cowrite.

yeah…..boring, I know, I can’t give you any inspiring words on this one 😉

4. Know your rights.

Ok, so lets say, you didn’t do step 1, 2, or 3 and you are now in a situation where you hear your song on the radio or under a commercial and you frantically check your records and realize there is nothing registered or listed. What do you do??

Go find evidence, a recording from the day of creation, an email with the song demo. Once you gather enough evidence, GO GET YOURSELF A LAWYER!!

I’m not a legal expert and I’m not claiming to have any legal background, so therefor I’m going to send you to this

5. Give a little, take a little

I’ve been in writes where the artist did not add a single word to the song, yet they still got 50% and I’ve been in writes with artists who underline all the words they feel they added to the song and come up with some crazy percentage splits, I’ve been in writes where the manager sits in and gets 25% for just sitting in the room.

Hey, this is the music industry, life isn’t always fair and world peace is far far away at this point in time, so the way I look at things is with a giant grain of salt. Sometimes you gotta give a little just to be able to be in the room, sometimes you get a little more than you deserve just by being in the room, It’s ok, you don’t want Soundcloud promotion real to be the guy or gal who is going to split hairs every single cowrite, that just makes people not want Soundcloud promotion real to write with you.

Don’t get me wrong, getting your business together is really really (have I said really already) really important. But……you can be flexible with the percentages, when you are growing your business and your database of cowriters, don’t be the one who holds up sessions picking over details. Go with the flow (but don’t let anyone take advantage of you either!)

So, go make friends, be merry, write great songs, and be informed and ready to make some hits!!!

DJ-SLT-UK

Sometimes you know exactly who the grandparents are when you see the baby. In this case, Funkadelic and Kraftwerk are guilty as hell. They must have hooked up in the greenroom of their 1978 Eastern European tour and produced what grew to be DJ-SLT-UK. ~ Supreme Team...

DJ Crankz

DJ Crank's "DonkHouse" is Atari on crack cut with insanity. It's kinetic energy would be right at home with bright red hair in Run Lola Run. Very solid production. It clocks in at 2:27 and leaves you exhausted like a 100 meter dash. ~Supreme::: If you could reach any goal...

Christine King

C.K. criminally undersells herself. Her listed influences are not exactly the avant-garde heroes of yesterday, but the music screams "real." It is edgy, LA indie, with heart and creativity. The ghosts of PJ Harvey, Mates of State, and the Runaways are waking up. Who are...
