If you have composed and/or written the lyrics of a musical work with others, each one is considered as a co-creator and has a share of ownership.

This will determine how performing and mechanical rights (the two parts of copyright) will be split between the co-creators.

Based on the importance of each person’s contribution to the creation of the musical work and its promotion, a percentage of performing rights and a percentage of mechanical rights needs to be defined and agreed upon by each co-creator.

The split will be applied for the royalty collection of the musical work and distributed as declared between the co-creators.
