(2) Exclusive Song Writer Agreement (“ESWA”) / “Publishing Deal”: Under the ESWA or “Staff Writer” contract, the songwriter generally awards the music publisher the total share of the lyricist in the revenue. The author`s services are exclusively intended for music publishers for a certain period of time. Thus, all compositions written during this period belong to the music publishing house. These offers are usually offered to writers with some degree of success. Since the author has a track record in writing hits, the publishing house is confident that it will recover its investment. In return for signing exclusive rights for some or all of the author`s songs, the author receives a negotiated advance on future royalties from the publishing house. The amount of the advance depends, of course, on the writer`s bargaining power and, if so, on the competition in the market.
