Do I need to create a contract for my project?
Consortio users are supported by a set of Terms that include information usually found in commissioning contracts. By using Consortio, composers and ensembles are implicitly agreeing to abide by these Terms, which is considered binding in a court of law.
Does Consortio provide terms for a project?
Yes. Within the Terms of the Site there is a default set of Terms for projects. These include, but are not limited to, the following terms related specifically to composers:
- Composers agree to upload their final score on or before the delivery deadline they choose for the project.
- Composers reserve all rights (performance, publication, sale, recording) to the finished work following the nine month premiere window.
Consortio's model provides built-in protections for composers and project members.
- Composers' fees are available and protected because project members pay in advance of the member goal deadline.
For a complete list of project terms, please refer to the full Terms of the site.
Can I adapt or change the project terms?
Generally, no. If you feel strongly that you need to customize terms for one or more projects, please contact us directly.
