Under the terms of these work for hire agreements, the compositions created are fully owned by the publisher. Because the recapture provision of the United States Copyright Act of does not apply to "works made for hire," the rights to a song created under an employment contract cannot be "recaptured" by the writer after 35 years.

Tools typically used are keyboards, drum machines, software synths and digital audio workstations. Beatmakers aren't necessarily record producers since they generally do not work directly with an artist in a recording studio. However, a traditional Record Producer can be involved in the co-writing process wearing two hats as the Producer and Songwriter for writing the instrumental backing tracks for the recording Artist, there forth the Producer would receive both songwriting and production credits.
Beatmakers sells or licenses musical instrumental compositions or beats to a recording artist as the Co-Writer for use in pre-production to create a "New Song".
