Musician Songwriter split sheet
Why Split Sheets Are NecessarySplit sheets are an essential safeguard for creators to ensure that they are being properly compensated for the work they contribute to. Under U.S. Copyright Law, any co-written content without a written agreement, like a split sheet, will be equally divided depending on the number of people involved. This can put contributing producers and songwriters at risk to receive less ownership or revenue for the content they created, which can lead to serious legal battles down the road. Split sheets can save creators from a potential legal headache because it requires them to come to an agreement and establish their ownership in writing, which can be referred back to or supplied to third parties if necessary.
