    What is a personal service contract?

    A:

    A personal service contract is an agreement used in the entertainment industry to bind an artist to a company that manufactures, distributes or promotes the artist's works, performances or services. When an artist enters into a personal service agreement, they are often restricting their right to create work or perform outside of the company they have contracted with. Companies use personal service agreements as a means of guaranteeing that the artists who work with them, and who are generating a profit for them, will stay with those companies for the amount of time specified in the contract.
