Legal Tips: Audrey Chisholm, Esq. – “Signing With A Label”

  • Artists, make sure the verbal promises a record label makes are written in the actual agreement you sign.
  • Many record label contracts state that any promises that were not included in the signed document will not be valid in court.
  • Protect yourself by having a lawyer explain the “legal meaning” of the contract to make sure the words match the promises the label made.
