Split Sheet / Producer Agreement.
This agreement is between the Producer, the Sample Maker and ArtistConnect.
By uploading the samples, the sample maker confirms to be the sole author of the samples (compositions). The sample maker warrants that no samples, interpolations, repetitions or other third party copyrighted material is included in the Composition to which Sample Maker does not own any rights. If a Sample is the subject of a copyright claim in connection with the Composition and/or payment of monies attributable to the Composition, the sample maker agrees that its own interest in the copyright and/or monies attributable to the composition will be reduced unless it is responsible for providing the sample.
The split specified by the sample maker when uploading the samples (revenue split) is legally binding for the producer. However, if the sample maker and the producer subsequently agree on a different split, the subsequently agreed split shall apply.
The credits are to be given in the form (prod. by 'Producer', 'Sample Maker'). However, if the sample maker and producer subsequently agree on a different allocation of credits, the subsequently agreed credit allocation shall apply.
4. Major Placements
If a song in which the sample is used (placement) reaches more than 100,000 streams, the producer must inform the sample maker and ArtistConnect immediately. If the song is likely to reach more than 100,000 streams based on the streaming numbers of the artist's previous songs, the sample maker and ArtistConnect must be informed of the placement before the song is released. This is the case at the latest for artists with more than 30,000 streams on Spotify.
5. ArtistConnect Share
ArtistConnect, as the agent of the placement, receives 20 % of the Sample Maker's revenue from the placement (If a sample maker generates €100 in revenue from a placement, then ArtistConnect receives €20).
