Ah!,

Well then. Avoid anyone who wants to own your music outright and not license its use from you unless that particular music, in your/his opinion is relatively disposable or unless you get a big enough pay out for its use in perpetuity.

Think of music as an intellectual property. You get paid for its creation and also for the degree of exposure. A ditty for an industrial video should be less expensive than the underscoring for MicroSoft's next TV campaign. I don't remember what Bill Gates paid for the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" for the Windows 95 campaign, but the $3 mil, $8 mil and $14 mil you read about are a benchmark that you can only hope for.
