Music Business/Law Tips - "Synch Tips"
An artist can increase the likelihood of getting their music placed in film, TV and commercials if they take care of the following first: 1. Make sure to own the copyrights for both the masters and the songs embodied on the masters so there is easy licensing. 2. Make sure the music is "claim" and "sample free" (i.e., all legal issues/permissions/clearances have been worked out in advance). 3. Make sure that the person "pitching" has the authority to act as an agent (administrator) on behalf of all the copyrights. Ben McLane Esq benmclane.com
