1. Ghost Recordz as a record label: what are we
A record label is a brand name in the music industry. It is an organization that markets music in the form of a sound carrier. It, therefore, bears the responsibility for production, distribution and marketing. Usually, the distribution is outsourced to music distributors. Literally, a record label is a label in the centre of a gramophone record. In addition to stating the artist name and titles of the record and the songs, it also includes the record company with logo, making the word label a synonym for a record company.
2. Ghost Recordz as a record label: contract
Where music is actually released, record label and artist enter into a contract. This contains provisions about which pieces of music it concerns, the property rights that both parties have and the distribution of income. Ghost Recordz often owns the exclusive right to produce and publish the music. In addition to the provisions for the issue of the sound carrier, provisions have also been included to regulate activities such as sponsoring, merchandise and other partnerships, often in the sense that exclusivity is granted on pain of a fine for violation.

Copyright arises automatically. To be protected by copyright, the work must be original. That is to say, the author must have put some of his personality into the work. He must have engaged in intellectual activity, making certain choices that should ultimately ensure that the work "bears its personal stamp".Copyright ensures that the author, the one who created the work, has control over that work. This means that only the author may perform certain actions with the work created by him. Ghost Recordz collaborates with its artists with international distributors, who manage all releases of singles, albums and other digital audio for the purpose of publishing on digital streaming platforms.Because Ghost Recordz and its artists submit all songs to our distributors, they assign a UPC and ISRC code that makes the songs unique.By doing this, Ghost Recordz / its artists can prove that the song was produced on the respective entry date, and released on the respective release date.If others want to use his work, they will have to obtain permission from the author and possibly pay a fee (unless an exception may apply; see below).ExceptionsCopyright is not unlimited or unlimited.
