Publishing contracts

The last years the legal context of publishing contracts has changed substantially. New fees and new rights were created, but also the technical evolution (digitisation, Internet, ...) have caused a much-needed amendment of the publishing contracts for musical works.

Semu has asked Prof. Dr. Fabienne Brison to draw up an updated publishing contract that meets current laws and modern techniques. Special care was paid to a balanced division of the interests and problems between the composer/author and the publisher.

This publishing contract is currently available to Semu music publisher members. The dutch version and the french version can be downloaded here.
