    Master Ownership


    A Master Owner is someone who owns the recording of a song.

    If you have created the recording of a song in your own studio, you are by default, the Master Owner.

    Generally, if you have recorded the song at a professional studio or with a producer and have paid for the service, you own the recordings and are the Master Owner.

    If you were to sign a record deal with a record label, the record label would generally become the Master Owner.


    Types of Master Owners:

    Individual as Creator refers to a recording of a song that you have created

    Record Labels typically are in the business of owning master recordings
