GENERAL COLLABORATION AGREEMENT HAND-OUT
TO ACCOMPANY THE: COLLABORATION ASSIGNMENT
ACADEMY FOR NEW MUSICAL THEATRE
MEMORANDUM OF AGREEMENT
Collaborative Musical Assignments - Core Curriculum
As a participant in ANMT’s Core Curriculum, I, __________________________
understand and agree to the following policy regarding ownership of any writing that I do as part of the assignments associated with the Core Curriculum and the Labs.
I retain full ownership of any writing that I do for an ANMT assignment, in the craft to which I have been officially assigned by ANMT, regardless of the contribution of my fellow collaborators. That is to say, if I am assigned as a lyricist, I retain rights to the lyrics; if I am assigned as a composer, I retain the rights to the music; if I am assigned as a bookwriter, I retain rights to the book.
I further understand that if I make a contribution to someone else’s craft on an assignment, I do not receive any ownership in that person’s rights. For example, if I am assigned as a composer but assist in the lyrics, I retain full ownership in the music, but no ownership in the lyrics.
A copy of this agreement shall be filed with the Academy for New Musical Theatre.
