Work for Hire

Jeffrey Brabec, Vice President of Business Affairs for the Chrysalis Music Group, talks about work for hire. Work for hire occurs when a writer or composer writes a song for a film, television show, or commercial. However, the publishing company becomes the legal author of the work. Brabec points out that the songwriter or composer still receive writer royalties. There is a royalty schedule in all agreements. He also stresses that there are no reversions. Songwriters cannot take advantage of getting their song or score back. The future litigation of 2013 is covered as well. Brabec explains that the songwriting business will be the area of controversy.
