Artist Investment Agreement Contract

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mark Baker @ 5:17 am

Here`s what comes from famous music industry lawyer Steve Gordon. Gordon is the author of 11 Contracts That Every Artist, composer and producer Should Know. The last chapter of the book deals with investment agreements. This article discusses the points of an investment contract. This includes the perspective of both the artist and the investor. On the other hand, from the investor`s point of view, repayment should be made from all sources of income. This is because investment in one sector supports revenue growth in another. However, it is advantageous for an artist to limit the return of investment to income streams directly related to the investment. The investor`s potential overall return is generally limited in two ways. First, the return may be limited to an amount equivalent to a multiple of the investment, usually between 100% and 250%. For example, when an investor taps $25,000, the limit can be multiplied 100% (z.B $50,000). In this model, the artist is exempt from the obligation to continue paying the investor after the investor has made 100% profit. If you expect the investor to pay the fees directly or via you, make sure that this obligation is clear in the agreement.

Third-party funds can be a welcome request for an artist`s career. But the agreement between the investor and the artist must be well written. Both the artist and the investor are well advised to seek informed advice to protect their interests and structure an agreement that is fair to both parties. I wrote a book (“Invest in Music – Why Artists Pay Fans Now”) about what`s available on amazon ( It is also important for your investor to understand that an investment is not a guaranteed loan. There is no guarantee of return of the investment or of generating a profit. The amount of money invested depends on the identity of the investor and the artist. Sometimes an investor is so eager to help an artist that she doesn`t care much about losing money. In this case, it cannot even apply for protection in the form of a “pro-investor.” In general, if the investment in the next album is made, the investor will probably be compensated specifically from the album. If an investment in the artist is made overall, the compensation due to the investor can be much more extensive.

It is also in the interest of an artist to enter into the contract not as an individual, but through an “establishment enterprise. To achieve this, the artist must create an entity such as a company or an LLC.

Agreements Between Eu And Switzerland

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mark Baker @ 1:43 am

Negotiations between Switzerland and the European Commission for an institutional framework agreement began in 2014 and ended in November 2018. On 7 December 2018, the Federal Council decided not to accept or reject the negotiated agreement, but to opt for a public consultation. [18] The negotiated agreement [19] would cover five areas of the 1999 EU-Swiss agreements: surrounded by four EU Member States – Germany, Austria, Italy and France – Switzerland has bilateral relations with the EU, meaning that the EU and Switzerland negotiate separate agreements on various issues. Of these thirteen votes, three are against further integration in the EU or for a reversal of EU integration (6 December 1992, 4 March 2001 and 9 February 2014); the other ten votes are in favour of deepening or maintaining integration between Switzerland and the European Union. [23] The internal consultation process has shown that the current version of the framework agreement does not enjoy broad support. The easing of wage protection, public subsidies and ambiguities regarding the EU Citizenship Directive, which creates additional rights for EU citizens in the area of social assistance and family reunification, are particularly criticised. Another highly controversial issue is the dispute settlement procedure, which aims to settle disputes between EU and Swiss law, and the dynamic adoption of the law requiring Switzerland to permanently adopt new EU legislation. However, contrary to what opponents of the agreement claim, this is not an automatic adoption of EU law, as Switzerland can decide separately on any adoption of EU law within the framework of the proposed legal development mechanism and the constitutional rights still respected – the referendum option is therefore fully preserved. Following the rejection of EEA membership in 1992, Switzerland and the EU agreed on a set of seven sectoral agreements signed in 1999 (called “bilateral I” in Switzerland). These include the free movement of people, technical barriers to trade, public procurement, agriculture and air and land transport. In addition, a scientific agreement on research has fully integrated Switzerland into the EU`s research framework programmes. These bilateral agreements between the EU and Switzerland are currently managed by some 20 joint committees. The EU has long criticised the fact that the current network of bilateral agreements does not guarantee homogeneity in the application and development of legislation and that there is no institutional framework overall.

The emphasis is on the fact that most agreements do not provide for any explicit obligation for Switzerland to regularly adapt market access agreements to relevant developments in EU legislation. The EU therefore subordinates the new market access agreements to the conclusion of a framework agreement that regulates institutional issues in a uniform and superior manner. In addition to the dynamic development of bilateral agreements, the agreement also provides for a dispute resolution mechanism and, on the whole, enhances legal certainty and transparency in decision-making. Switzerland`s economic and trade relations with the EU are mainly governed by a series of bilateral agreements in which Switzerland has agreed to adopt certain aspects of EU legislation in exchange for access to part of the EU internal market. In its press release of 7 June 2019, the Federal Council approved the report on consultations on the institutional agreement between Switzerland and the EU, while stressing that some issues still needed to be resolved. The consultation showed that the political left and the right are opposed to the agreement, albeit for different reasons. While the left is particularly critical of the fact that wage protection would be undermined, representatives of the right complain that “foreign judges” could govern Swiss affairs.

Agreement On Trade-Related Aspects Of Intellectual Property (Trips)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mark Baker @ 12:10 am

Unlike other IP agreements, TRIPS have an effective enforcement mechanism. States can be disciplined by the WTO dispute settlement mechanism. What are intellectual property rights? Intellectual property rights are the rights given to men by creating their minds. Article 40 of the TRIPS ON Agreement recognizes that certain practices or licensing conditions related to intellectual property rights that limit competition can have negative effects on trade and impede the transfer and dissemination of technology (paragraph 1). Member States may adopt appropriate measures under the other provisions of the agreement to prevent or control abusive and anti-competitive intellectual property licensing practices (paragraph 2). The agreement provides a mechanism by which a country intending to take action against such practices involving companies from another Member State will consult with that other Member State and exchange non-confidential information relevant to the public for the issue in question and other information available to that member, subject to domestic law and the conclusion of satisfactory agreements for both parties regarding compliance with its confidentiality by the member. applicant member (paragraph 3). Similarly, a country whose companies in another Member State are subject to such measures may engage in consultations with that member (point 4). TRIPS has imposed the dominant system of intellectual property on the world in the United States and Europe, as humans are today.

I believe that the development of the IP system is not good for the United States and the EU; but I believe even more that it is not in the interest of developing countries. Article 10 of the agreement states that “1. Computer programs, whether in the source code or in the object code, must be protected as literary works under the Berne Convention (1971). (2) The compilation of data or any other material, whether machine-readable or in any other form, constituting spiritual creations because of the choice or disposition of their content, must be protected as such.
