CLE 2: What You Get and Give Up in Today's Recording Agreement

The exclusive recording agreement remains the centerpiece contract of most music artists' careers. However, by getting signed, not only are the probabilities of a sustained career with a record company less than at the beginning of this century, but the terms of the recording agreement also have evolved since then to become less artist-friendly. Declining music sales, coupled with the reduction of the purchase price of music altogether, justifies scrutinizing record deals more than ever.
