Split Sheet
      14/02/13 04:28 AM
I have a few questions. Filling out a split sheet for a DJ/Producer. There was an artist/writer featured on the track. It is being licensed out to a label but no publishing is being given up.

Now for the split sheet the Producer/DJ has no publishing company, but the writer/vocalist does. Is this how the split sheet should be filled out??

Producer gets 50% of Music ownership and 0% of the Lyrics
Vocalist get 50% of the Lyrics and 0 % of the Music = 50 + 50 = 100% of the full song.

Publishing Company (if a 3rd party is entitled to a % of Publishing, list this party’s information as well):
TBD Publishing %: 50

Ownership %: Lyrics 0% Music: 50% (Identify each % of ownership)

Publishing Company (if a 3rd party is entitled to a % of Publishing, list this party’s information as well):

Publishing %:
Affiliation: ASCAP BMI SESAC (Circle one)
Ownership %: Lyrics: 50% Music: 0% (Identify each % of ownership)
