    What If Multiple Collaborators Wrote the Lyrics & Melody (the "Composition")?

    Not a problem! Users can have unlimited shareholders, or collaborators, on a Stem contract. As long as the sum of your splits simply equals 100 percent, our system can handle the rest. Each shareholder receives their own Stem account, so any shareholder can access and manage content they have worked on.
