Cover Art Agreement


One of the most often overlooked contracts in the music industry is the license to use the cover artwork for your release. Independent artists often use artwork that they receive from a friend or an acquaintance, but they fall to clarify what the use is for an ensure that they are not going to resell the same image to someone else. It is important to document the purchase of the image and ensure that you are not going to lose out on the exclusive right or be told you owe money to the creator later on.
