Company to distribute MCR Programs approved

For some time now Rattler Publishing has searched for a distributor for recorded MCR programs. This morning Nasrene and David, of Rattler Publishing Global, and Tammi Herinici of Gemini International group unanimously approved the proposal submitted by a major distribution company that will distribute the material globally. The material in the studio archives will be the first to be formatted and delivered to the distributor. Rattler Publishing in keeping with the original agreement with Gemini will not claim ownership of the intellectually property. The program will remain the intellectual property of the program host. The distributor agrees with Gemini that Rattler Publishing Global; who is financing the project will receive a small percentage of sales from the material, provided the owner goes through the suggested distributor, but there is no contractual agreement that suggest the material is to be exclusively distributed through the agree company, leaving the each individual property owner to decide to use the suggested distributor or find their own.
The product will be place on the Melanated Community Radio website as it becomes available.
This also fulfills the agreement between Rattler Publishing and Gemini at the start up of MCR about building financial empowerment for melanated people.
After the Saturday Meeting I asked Nasrene Muhammad about the agreement and does it have any hidden clauses the host and station manager should be concern about in the future?
Nasrene replied. "There are no hidden clauses that pertains to the material of the host. But please keep in mind Rattler Publishing do not own the material and it is up to the owner to copyright the material for distribution, which was never part of the original agreement between Rattler Publishing and Gemini."
