THE UNION. x RAVE ADVISORY REGISTRATION
For the last few months, we've transitioned Rave Advisory away from a paid-services model and into a network which will help artists, labels, and industry with their brands, publishing, and other resources. This transition has formed a new network: The Union, which will act as a performing rights organization for the aforementioned parties.

The Union will open in 2018 and be free for any artists to sign up for. However, some services and options come at a premium and artists will be sorted by their abilities. To give us a better idea of who you are, and to help us better accommodate you, we have this registration form. Once you complete it, you can anticipate that we will reach out to you within 3-5 business days.

Preliminary Artist/Label Agreement *

This contract between you ("Artist" or "Label") and Rave Advisory LLC (d/b/a The Union, hereforth referred to as "The Union") furnishes the expectations and guidelines of the relationship between the aforementioned parties.

The Union. is an artist rights organization which serves the needs of artists, labels, and other industry by helping them access resources and tools. By submitting this application to The Union., you request a free, revocable membership on The Union's performing rights organization. In this membership, you will have the opportunity to distribute and publish music either as an artist or a label and be entitled to other resources and opportunities as a member of The Union. Some premium offerings might exist (such as the creation of websites, the management of social media, or the pitching of your material to blogs and digital retailers like Apple Music, Spotify, or other third-parties.) By selecting, "I Accept" on this agreement, you acknowledge that you give The Union and Rave Advisory LLC an exclusive, irrevocable right to represent, publish, distribute, and promote the material that you serve us or our partners. You do not forfeit your ownership over your composition, but you extend us an irrevocable commercial right to represent your material and to do what we can to make your material commercially successful.

When publishing material --either independently or with a partnered organization, member label or collective, or member of the PRO--you consent to allow Rave Advisory LLC to collect your mechanicals, royalties, and other payments from sites such as Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, etc. These payments will be collected and added to a "artist balance" which will be paid out to artists and labels when they generate roughly $50 in revenue. The payout can be made in one of three forms: check, Google Wallet, or Paypal. The royalty and payment information collected by Rave Advisory LLC and The Union. will be publicly available to the artist and the label for transparency purposes. Every quarter, Rave Advisory and The Union. will update the balances of labels and artists. However, labels and artists can request their balance update formally via email or informally via their provided Discord room on the Rave Advisory/Union Discord channel.

This is not to say that Rave Advisory or The Union will be held responsible for any liabilities that might arise as a result of the use of your material or your membership in The Union performing rights organization. No expectation should exist--as an artist or as a label--that should hold The Union to an expectation. We provide our service, "as is" - in it's current form, and will not guarantee the commercial viability or artistic success of any work. Clients and members of The Union are forbidden from holding The Union or any of its member organizations liable for liabilities or damages that might arise as a result of artist negligence, third-party services, or communication. In the case that damages or liabilities --whether in the form of a copyright issue, legal dispute, illicit activity, or some other inquiry-- arise against The Union or our partner organizations as a result of your party's negligence, you will be held responsible for the damages or recompenses per this artist agreement.

In the case that you make a purchase of a premium offering from The Union, such as the creation of digital assets like a website, we anticipate and expect for you to make your purchase in full. Failure to pay for fulfilled premium services will result in removal from The Union, and the revocation of your rights as a member. If a pending balance exists in your "artist balance", we might withhold funds from your payout. In the case that a financial dispute arises in the case of material or premium-related offerings, these disputes must be settled via email or over the phone with a representative from The Union. or Rave Advisory.

Furthermore, we acknowledge that this Artist and Label Agreement between you ("Artist" or "Label") and Rave Advisory LLC is a living document, and might be updated at any time. Your agreement with The Union and Rave Advisory LLC is conditional, and is only valid so long as you or your representative party remain compliant with the above terms. At any time, for any reason, Rave Advisory LLC and The Union can revoke your membership and according rights as a member of The Union if we see it fit to do so. We will provide written notice in any case that we believe you have violated our terms, and try our best to provide warnings. By pressing agree, you unconditionally agree to the terms above and understand your rights in joining The Union PRO and Rave Advisory.

Financial Agreement *

This financial agreement is a binding contract between you ("Artist" or "Label") and Rave Advisory LLC which acts as an extension of the preliminary artist and label agreement. By agreeing to the former agreement, you provided Rave Advisory LLC and The Union. the right to represent your brand (either artist, label or mgmt group); distribute material with consent; and act on your behalf in matters dealing with copyrights or other premium offerings. This agreement deals specifically with the collection of funds and your "artist balance."

When you sign up as a member of The Union. and release with Rave Advisory or another member label or collective, our artist agreement extends upon that contract provisionally for the collection of funds for both the member artist and the member label or collective. This provides a transparent and thorough way for us to collect earnings and distribute them without friction. You will have your own contract which will lay out the terms of your financial ownership of a record or release. In many cases, the release material will be 50% for the artist/50% for the label. In either form, The Union. will take 5% off of both the member label and member artist's earnings to cover publishing expenses, administrative costs, and other provisions. This 5% is not taken as a volume of a single track, but as a collection of all funds so as to keep the cost to the represented parties low.

The remaining revenue--post-fees--will be logged and reflected in an "Artist Balance" which will update each quarter. As formerly noted, the "Artist Balance" is a balance which is updated quarterly for both artists and labels; it is comprised of your earnings from royalties, licensing, copyrights, and other dealings. Artists and labels can request payouts of their Artist Balance via check, Paypal, or Google Wallet as soon as the minimum payout balance is hit ($50). In some cases, Rave Advisory LLC might liquidate the outstanding Artist Balances for any reason and payout a balance to one of the three aforementioned provided forms of payment for an amount less than $50. In any case, once a payout is made, the Artist Balance will revert to $0.

The Union. and Rave Advisory LLC will be transparent in providing reports on the stream counts, downloads, and method by which content is served to viewers and fans. This information, along with all financial information, will be provided transparently upon request. Should an artist or label wish to audit The Union., they will reserve the legal right to do so as long as they are compliant with our terms and conditions. Should a member label or artist wish to leave The Union., they will be able to withdrawal their Artist Balance assuming it has reached the minimum payout balance.

Once a track or other form of content is released with The Union., Rave Advisory LLC will serve the exclusive role of collecting royalties, mechanicals, and licensing fees for the member artist and label. Rave Advisory LLC will also represent the member artist and label in certain dealings relating to the usage of material, publishing and proliferation of material, and other provisions.

By accepting the terms of this Financial Agreement, you agree to the terms of the The Union./Rave Advisory LLC collection, the payout methods, the terms of your artist balance and collection, and other terms. To accept, press "I Accept" below.
