Contracts between band members, managers or managements companies become increasingly common. Contracts often go into great detail regarding acceptable and unacceptable codes of public behaviour which all band members are expected to adhere to.
The easiest way is to make them not want to. If you are a popular band or artist with a growing number of followers an agent or promoter won't want to break your contract.
A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from the past, he/she is one who is prematurely disappointed in the future.~ Sidney J. Harris

Songwriters and publishers also earn money each time a song plays on he radio, television or during any public performances.The most noted performance societies are BMI, ASCAP and SESAC.These companies track and calculate how many times your songs are being played on t he radio, television and in public places. If you, your publishing company and your song are not registered with a performance society you will not be paid for public performances of your song. In some cases, the publishing company will have the right to collect the writer's hare of performance royalties and apply that income against the songwriter's unrecouped advances.
