I'm wondering what the "industry standard" is for contracts. Should I expect rights for x number of performances? For a specified time?
If I decide in 5-6 years that I want to repeat the same show, would I need to start all over with the rights? Or is it a one-time purchase like buying a chart off the shelf for concert band?
If part of my show is a piece off the shelf, and we're playing it as written, do I need additional rights? What if we only play an excerpt of that piece?
