  • Newly allocated Royalty Splits will take effect on royalties reported on the relevant item of Music Content during the month following the month in which the Royalty Splits were allocated.
  • Any Royalty Splits allocated to any other Team are calculated on and deducted from one-hundred percent (100%) of the royalties earned through the Distribution Service by the relevant item of Music Content, after which the remainder of the royalties shall be shared with and allocated to the individual members of your Team in accordance with the Royalty Splits allocated to such individual Team members.
  • For any Royalty Splits allocated to your Team, you can select whether such Royalty Splits should be paid out on Team level or to the individual members of such Team in accordance with the Royalty Splits allocated to such individual Team members. On all such Royalty Splits between you and your Team members the applicable (local) laws between such contractual parties are applicable.
