Explanation of Agreement
This is a Licensing Agreement Template. It can be used by an artist to license a song for use in a motion picture, television show, video game or any reason you want to give someone permission to use your song. In the Agreement, this reason is referred to as “the Project”, and the party who is using the composition for the Project is referred to as “the Licensee”. The Agreement regulates the relationship between the Artist and the Licensee and records their agreement regarding ownership and use of the song. Once the Agreement is signed by the Artist and the Licensee, it is legally binding.
