Copyrighted music
on May 26, 2006 at 3:29:46 pm

Hey guys. I am new to the site and definitely appreciate the information that I am getting from here. One thing I'm starting to run into is the use of copyrighted music. I do some commercials and other promotional video and really need to know the process of using this music if I do want to put it on a regional commercial. Where do I even start to look for gaining copyright access to songs and such? I'm willing to pay for these but just have no clue where to go?

THANKS!
Matt

You are wise to be concerned about this, especially if your video is going to get wide viewing as with a commercial. Copyright infringement settlements in those cases can be quite substantial.

At one time this type of clearance was handled by companies like the Harry Fox Agency. I don't know if they are still involved in it, but they can refer you to someone else who is.

What you are seeking is called synchronization rights.
