Whilst it might seem obvious to many that a studio or producer would release any ownership of master rights once a payment is made for their services, this is unfortunately a problematic area for many creators. Lets imagine you’ve got a placement for your song on that cool new Netflix show. You’re going to need to sign a sync license for its release. If you suddenly find that the person that you hired makes a claim, your intellectual property could be affected. The solution is simple. Ask the producer or studio to sign this document once the project is completed. By using this document you are asking any studio or producer that you work with to release the master rights to you upon the completion of any hired work.
