House of rights

Today, Higher Court in Leeuwarden ruled on appeal that Martin Garrix had no legal right to break his agreements prematurely with Spinnin Records and MusicAllStars Management. Martin Garrix announced his split from the company in August 2015 and it wasn't too long until it was revealed that he was lobbying for lawsuit against both parties for allegedly coercing him and his father into signing a contract that was not in his best interests. The portion of the lawsuit was withdrawn in December 2015 but the remaining allegations continued to be discussed in Court until September 2017, when the judge ruled in Garrix's favor. At the time, judges of Lelystad Court in the Netherlands ruled that there was a conflict of interest, as Eelko Van Kooten, director of Spinnin Records at the time, was also director of MusicAllStars, company responsible for negotiating Garrix's contract with Spinnin. In victory, Garrix was given back rights and masters to some of his biggest hits, including the song that broke him as an artist, Animals. This new ruling confirms that production - and management agreements with Martin Garrix were established correctly and properly comply with, by Spinnin Records and MusicAllStars Management. Accusations by Garrix that agreements were unreasonable have also been reject: It can be concluded that Martin Garrix was not falsely lead into agreements in 2012 and 2013, Higher Court say. According to the Higher Court, agreements expire in mid - 2015 and not before. In this long running case, Higher Court ruled in favor of the dance label and management company, which at the time were run by Eelko Van Kooten, and confirmed that Garrix was unwilling to live up to his agreements. Eelko Van Kooten about ruling: I am delighted with the ruling of the Higher Court that we made valid agreements with Martijn at the time, which should have been respect. This statement confirms that accusations of deception or fraud are unjustified. Even though I have since sold Spinnin Records and MusicAllStars Management, those accusations were also aimed at me personally. I look back with pride on successful collaboration with Martijn and wish him best in his further career. Martin will have to pay for damages which will be determined in the coming period, based on anticipated loss of revenue from tracks.

Fan relation

Martin Garrix's two - year legal battle regarding music ownership rights against Spinnin Records is over - and so is his relationship with the dance record label. Early Wednesday morning, Dutch judge ruled in favor of Garrix's effort to win back rights to music he previously signed to Spinnin Records and its sister company, MusicAllStarsmanagement, according to Dutch publication Rechtspraak. As a result, Garrix's contract with the label has been destroy, and the young Dutch producer is reclaimingthe rights to masters on tracks, including his monster hit Animals. I am happy with this outcome, not only for myself but also for all other DJ's / producers out there, since this case was not only about me, but about all of us artists, guarantee in statement. The rulingcomes after a lengthy - and at times, thorny - dispute between Garrix and the label, which counts heavy - hitters like Tiesto and Afrojack among its alums. Garrix first split with Spinnin in 2015, citing disagreement over ownership rights of his music. He later filed a lawsuit against former managerEelko van Kooten, who Garrixclaims provided false and misleading information that led him to sign withthe label and management company back in 2012, renewing his contract in 2013. Garrix also claim that van Kooten's involvement in both Spinnin and MusicAllStarsrepresented conflict of interest, and that van Kootenintentionally misled Garrixinto thinking he had no option but to signa combination contract. But legal proceedings have yet to reach the finish line. Dutch online newspaper nu. Nl reports that Garrixis demanding 3. 7 million from Spinnin and 650 000 from MusicAllStars, which in turn want Garrix to fork over 6. 4 million. Garrix'steam has told Billboard, all of Spinnin / mas claims have been rejected by the court. The only remaining question is the amount to be repaid by Spinnin / MAS to Martijn. Meanwhile, Warner Music recently purchased Spinnin Records and itsmusic publishing and artist management divisions, andvan Kootenexited company. The label's current roster includes Bob Sinclar, EDX, Fedde Le Grand and Kris Kross Amsterdam, among others.

Cement

For fans, cement that holds artist - fan relationship together is music, story and personality of the artist or deejay. In fact, artist or deejay himself is intellectual property via his music. He makes connections with fans, which subsequently results in data that artist or deejay can capitalize on. In right 360 - degrees collaboration, manager is the artist's business partner who operates in full rights management business model that supposes the artist or deejay as brand. All artist's or deejay's rights, like personality rights, trademark rights, related rights, copy rights and other rights, are aces in the manager's arsenal in negotiating a favorable contract for his client or business partner. These rights are part of house of rights that is administered by the artist's or deejay's management. From this house of rights - construction, you can license rights per area to an operator who is best at his chosen field. In this way, record labels, music publishers, booking agencies, event producers, commercial sponsor raisers and merchandisers have become service providers. Experience learns that in the entertainment industry and music business in particular, innovations take a long time to land. One of the reasons is that challengers of the status quo are always dependent on the establishment. This state of affairs is illustrated by lack of urgency to re - evaluate the content or asses vitality of current business practices. * These are some paragraphs of new upcoming publication EDM and Digital Domain Why dj's, events and festivals should change.
