Great post Steve. I just had this issue come up. Client and Friend wrote song. They both recorded the song in Friend's studio, using Friend's gear, etc. The recording got licensed for use on on a television soundtrack. Friend agreed the song was co-written, but claimed to "own the master" 100%. Fortunately, we got to the purchaser of the license before the check was cut and negotiate something. As more music is recorded "independently," and then later distributed by a mainstream outlet, this will likely occur more frequently.

Thanks for the example Brent. I always appreciate your observations.
