If you are the creator of a product of any type you may want to consider product licensing instead of simply selling all rights away to a company. The difference here is that product licensing gives a company or individual a specific time to use your product for a contracted amount. You can negotiate the amount and time before you sign the agreement but once it is signed by you and the interested part, the negotiation is over until the time expires.
There is no easy way to negotiate a licensing agreement since every need is different. You want to set your time limit and price based upon the needs of your client and not some pre-conceived notion of what is a fair and equitable agreement. Licensing agreements do not have a one size fits all-the products will be different and thus the time and price will also be different. It is essential to know when to negotiate for a higher fee and when to stay within the range the client originally offers.
You may choose to use a lawyer to negotiate your product licensing agreement, and though that is a wise decision to make, if you are new, you may not have the financial means to hire a lawyer. For those who are unable to afford a lawyer to draw up the agreement, you can purchase software or you can hire someone to prepare the agreement for you. The important issue is to make certain the person preparing the agreement, whether yourself or someone else, has your best interests in mind. If you contract someone to do the work for you make certain they are experienced in preparing product licensing agreements and are aware of the legal ramifications involved in the transaction?
The product you are licensing has a large impact on the terms of your licensing agreement. The higher the potential for future earnings, the more you want to charge for licensing your product. For example, if you own the rights to a collection of music that has the potential to bring in a large cash flow, you want to charge more for that license than you would for a new artist whose potential sales are unknown. The same methodology is true of an author-established authors who license their books rather than accept royalties or sell their rights will charge more than a new author or one who does not yet have a record of high sales.
Always look toward future income when setting your terms for licensing your product. It’s important to understand the potential loss you may suffer if you charge too low for licensing and sales go quite high. You cannot always predict what sales will be but if you consult with your attorney or an economic expert you can get some idea of where you should draw the line and how you should negotiate your product licensing. Avoid overcharging but protect your future sales as well. If you aren’t sure, you may want to consider a short-term agreement that will be open for renegotiation soon.

The T-6A Texan II is a single-engined turboprop aircraft built by the Raytheon Aircraft Company (now Hawker Beechcraft). It is used by the United States Air Force for basic pilot training and by the United States Navy for Primary and Intermediate Joint Naval Flight Officer (NFO) and Air Force Navigator / Weapon Systems Officer (WSO) training. It is replacing the Air Force’s T-37B Tweet and the Navy’s T-34C Turbo Mentor. The T-6A is also used as a basic trainer by the Canadian Forces (CT-156 Harvard II) and the Greek Air Force. The T-6 is a version of the Pilatus PC-9, modified significantly by Beechcraft in order to enter the Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) competition in the 1990s.The aircraft was designated under the 1962 United States Tri-Service aircraft designation system named for the decades-earlier T-6 Texan. A similar arrangement between Pilatus and British Aerospace had also been in place for an RAF competition in the 1980s, although this competition selected the Shorts Tucano. The Beechcraft brand has since been purchased from Raytheon by Onex Corporation as Hawker Beechcraft. T-6A The T-6A was introduced to Moody Air Force Base and Randolph Air Force Base in 2000-2001, and the Air Force awarded the full rate T-6 production contract in December 2001.Laughlin Air Force Base began flying the T-6 in 2003 where it is now the primary basic trainer, having completely replaced the venerable T-37. Vance Air Force Base completed transitioning from the T …
The Bristol Type 156 Beaufighter, often referred to as simply the Beau, was a British long-range heavy fighter modification of the Bristol Aeroplane Company’s earlier Beaufort torpedo bomber design. The name Beaufighter is a portmanteau of “Beaufort” and “fighter”. Unlike the Beaufort, the Beaufighter had a long career and served in almost all theatres of war in the Second World War, first as a night fighter, then as a fighter-bomber and eventually replacing the Beaufort as a torpedo bomber. Design and development The idea of a fighter development of the Beaufort was suggested to the Air Ministry by Bristol. The suggestion coincided with the delays in the development and production of the Westland Whirlwind cannon-armed twin-engined fighter. By converting an existing design the “Beaufort Cannon Fighter” could be expected to be developed and produced far quicker than starting a completely fresh design from scratch. Accordingly the Air Ministry produced specification F.11/37 written around Bristols suggestion for an “interim” aircraft pending proper introduction of the Whirlwind. Bristol started building a prototype by taking a part-built Beaufort out of the production line. This prototype first flew on 17 July 1939, a little more than eight months after the design had started and possible due to the use of as many of the Beaufort’s design and parts. A production contract for 300 machines had already been placed two weeks before the prototype flew, as F.17/39. In general …
Question by : Recording without a production contract?
What are the risks for the artist/songwriter? What are the risks for the independent producer/company?
Answer by Quizzard
The risks of the artist are limited, other than the recording studio having a copy of their work. That work cannot be published without permission, so that risk is limited.
The risk for the studio or producer is that they spend time and effort and have no product which they can sell.
