Congratulations! We’ve reviewed your answers from the music questionnaire and we’ve prepared your Exclusive Distribution and Publishing Agreement. Within a few more clicks, you’ll be a part of the largest global Music Distribution & Publishing network in the world consisting of all the major retailers, broadcasters, music aggregators, licensees, collection agencies, and music supervisors for film & TV. We distribute to over 1000 digital sites in hundreds of countries and territories—and this number is increasing every day!
About Your Exclusive Distribution and Publishing Agreement:
The following information provides a quick summary for your Agreement. The Agreement itself is short, concise and easy to read (we tried to exclude all the legal rhetoric that’s usually a part of long licensing agreements). Since our Sugo team was founded by musicians (and our work staff consists mainly of musicians and artists), we’ve made our Sugo Music Agreements as straightforward and simple as possible.
Here are the key points of your Exclusive Distribution and Publishing Agreement:
- You will continue to have 100% ownership of all your recordings, songs and copyrights.
- You will NOT pay any set-fees or submission costs.
- You’ll have a customer service team assisting you with your submissions and distribution questions.
- You’ll receive 70% of all income from digital downloads, digital broadcasts, any compact disc sales, around the world.
- You’ll receive 50% of all income received from synchronization licenses for film, TV and commercial use, and for user generated content on YouTube. This is an industry standard rate with music distributors.
- The term of the Agreement is 3 years. This will allow us enough time to get your recordings, songs (and even videos) distributed and performing throughout the largest network of retailers, broadcasters, and agents around the globe.
- You’ll receive a royalty payment and account statement every quarter (3 months). In this statement you’ll be able to see specific detail about which country, territory, channel, retailer, and broadcaster is selling and playing your music!
