Lanze: Hi, Julie. It`s Lance License, music supervisor for Nightlight Films. We love your song „Sync Me Up“ for our movie Popped! And I want to talk to you about licensing. Nothing in these terms should be construed as a partnership, joint venture, employment or agency relationship between you and the licensee. Each of the parties entered into this agreement as an independent contractor on the length of the weapons. NOTE: If you need master privileges for sound recording, you also need to get the sync rights to the music composition. A Synch license is required whenever music is used in audiovisual production such as film, television, advertising, video games, etc. Synch licenses can be a great way for artists to make money with their music. Music libraries prefer to work with DIY artists, because diy artists usually have their recordings and compositions – they can read here and here the difference between audio/master recordings and compositions/publishers. Whether you`re working with a library or on your own, owning or managing 100% of your sound recordings and compositions makes it easy to secure a Synch license. Hello Andi, It would be a good idea to have a written agreement between all the writers that says that one of you will be pointing, and that you can make agreements as an „agent“ without all the others having to sign. In principle, the document authorizes you to act on behalf of all authors when negotiating licensing agreements. It makes sense to concede certain types of music, such as traditional production music (i.e.

stick music, library music), among these types of chords. In recent times, music libraries have gone to greater lengths to sign more DIY artists in the hope of getting real songs, as this kind of content is considered „more valuable“ from a Synch licensing perspective than production music – there is greater potential for higher synchric fees, branding opportunities, soundtrack options, etc. Well presented arguments, Joyce, thank you! I`ve been doing this for a while, and your words resonate with my experience. It`s really hard to make that leap with pieces you`ve put your heart and soul into. I`m tired of things and I`m trying to do self-promotion until the right library that wants to buy the tracks arrives. But for now, it`s just a seatling of an idea. The sequel follows… Thank you again. Traditionally, a licensee (for example. B a person who wishes to include music in his film) should pay both the principal owner (the label or THE DIY artist in general) and the publisher (publisher, administrator or DO-how author) a prepayment to obtain permission to use the recording in sync with his audiovisual production.
