Music Business/Law Tips - "Synch Deal"

Common provisions that a songwriter/artist would want to see included in a synch deal are as follows: (1) a fee, (2) a credit, (3) a reversion if the song is not used, (4) limits on how the song is used in the show/film/commercial, (5) a term, and (6) copies of cue sheets sent to writer/artist so he/she can track the usage and make sure they get paid by BMI, ASCAP or SESAC.
