Administration Agreement (Admin Deal)

A partnership deal in which a songwriter contracts with a publishing administrator. In this arrangement, the songwriter keeps 100 percent ownership of the copyright and pays an administrative fee to the publisher/administrator. The administrator usually provides administrative services only and does not offer any creative services. Other such agreements include co-publishing, work-for-hire, and exclusive songwriter agreements.
