    Having a look to an exclusive Music library agreement, I got to this clause:
    “Upon cessation of the activity (i.e. liquidation / closure of the business) of the xxxxx
    Music Library, all rights of the xxxx (Music Library) entrusted by the composer remain with XXXXX (individual owner of the ;library) This also and in particular applies to the distribution of royalties through
    the Authors’ Association or another relevant collective rights management
    organisation. ”
    Is this a standard clause in exclusive agreements?

    “Upon cessation of the activity (i.e. liquidation / closure of the business) of the xxxxx
    Music Library, all rights of the xxxx (Music Library) entrusted by the composer remain with XXXXX (individual owner of the ;library) This also and in particular applies to the distribution of royalties through
    the Authors’ Association or another relevant collective rights management
    organisation. ”

    I believe what the contract is trying to say is to protect the rights and royalties of any placements the library made while a composer’s music is under contract to them. That would be fairly standard. Check with the library, or a lawyer (preferably), for clarification.
