I have a corporate client that wants to use an Allman Brothers's song as part of an inspirational internal presentation. I am aware of all the pitfalls of this practice and have tried to explain the ramifications to no avail. My question is, how would I even begin to acquire the rights to the music if the client is willing to pay. I have heard a lot of negative stories about long waits and huge amounts of money. Any advice would be appreciated.

The surest way is to work with a company that negotiates these kind of rights professionally.

Try Barbara Zimmerman at BZ Rights and Permissions in NYC.

But yes, expect to pay a LOT of money if you want to properly license a popular song.

Thanks for taking the time to respond. I used the info you gave me to stop the nonsense from the producer. Thanks again. Bob
