Australian artists are being given a hand to navigate the legal complexities of the music industry thanks to a valuable free resource - the Australian Music Industry Network’s new Music Industry Legal Pack.
Covering everything from management contracts to producer and remixer agreements, these fact sheets and checklists are aimed at equipping artists with some of the basic legal knowledge they need to deal with an increasingly complex industry.
This resource is not a substitute for professional legal advice, but it recognises the need for artists and industry to understand contracts put before them.
AMIN has also developed a detailed tax checklist for musicians that includes advice on how to set up a business, registering for GST, and what artists can claim when preparing their tax returns.
This resource was developed in consultation with industry and with assistance from entertainment law firm Simpsons and financial services company Moneypenny.
These fact sheets detail the nature, and need for, various types of contracts and agreements.
