Secret Studio® PUBLISHING

Secret Studio® Publishing for Artists
Art = Intellectual Property
Protect and Sell Your Art.

Secret Studio®  introduces the virtual label.  We legally protect and commercially license our content for uses of all kinds, (Intellectual Property Management).  But we act as a service for our partners, not an owner of our artists.  Our mission is nothing less than to replace the corporate system that controls musical artists.  To do this, we literally re-invented the "recording contract."  It is an innovation so radical that until recently,  we kept it... Secret.

Secret Studio® Capabilities
a unique combination of business, technology, and artistic experience

The Secret Studio® Catalog includes hundreds of works of music in multiple genres and a library of digital images.  With over 15 years of experience licensing IP, we offer  solutions ranging from New Age Piano to Industrial Grooves to MIDI Orchestration.  A BMI publisher for normal commercial licensing of our IP, custom licensing is also available for incorporating our art into technology projects of all kinds.

The important thing for artists to understand is that you are not published unless you have an agreement with a publisher.  Even if you want to be self published, you must have a contract.  So, to publish the hundreds of songs that my friends and I have recorded over the years, I worked with an established IP lawyer to create a contract.  When I reviewed a standard assignment contract used by major labels, My first problem is that I would not sign it, not even with my own company!  It takes away ALL artist rights and replaces them with a payment scheme.  So I spent over $20k developing the Secret Studio® custom assignment agreement.  This is the revolution in indie music that I sometimes joke about.   No other resource for indie music can publish you.  Not CD Baby, not Bandcamp, not Reverb Nation, not Soundcloud, no marketing service, not Taxi.  Only Secret Studio® will  license our label in a box for you to become legit.

Publishing as a service: sign with us and pay only administration for setup.

10 Things You Are Doing Wrong:
 

Independent artists are often shocked by the news when they are finally signed to a major label.    This is what they will tell you.

You sell self produced CD's at your shows.  (1) You are not paying Sales Tax.  (2) You are not paying royalties to the authors of your works.


When you perform, (3) you are not paying royalties to the authors of your works.


Your works do not have (4) ISRC, (5) BMI, (6) CDDB and (7) copyright.


You offer free downloads and (8) you do not pay royalties to the authors of your works.  (9) You have not defined for your fans what rights they have to use your free content.


(10) You have not set up your art as a business, with separate bank account, tax filings, state/county/city licensing.


WHY DOES THIS MATTER??  

If you want to stay small, it doesn't.  But if your art ever goes large, you will be at the mercy of lawyers and business people who do not have your interests at heart. 


The things you do now to succeed CAN BE LEGAL AND PROTECTED if you 
use the Label in a Box by Secret Studio®
LLC.  You can assign your sound recordings to your catalog and have all the benefits of being a signed artist with the freedom to continue to manage your own band and pursue multiple revenue streams. Our innovative custom assignment agreement allows you to avoid sales tax, offer free downloads through social networking, allows your fans to share your music, you can perform without royalty liability, and pursue commercial opportunities for your works. 

Be a
Secret Studio® artist.  Your recordings will have IP Management and you will be in BUSINESS.
