  • Covers key aspects regarding use of a piece of music in a video/film
  • Template for a song recording that already exists
  • Clear contract language covering song usage, fees and other terms

Anyone who has ever made a video or film knows that music can have a huge impact on the final product. When it comes to handling the rights involved in putting a particular song into a video or film, there’s plenty to consider. Multiple sets of rights can intersect, and everyone needs to be on the same page. My Music Licensing Agreement isn’t just a cut-and-paste contract, it’s an entire kit that will guide both musicians and video/filmmakers on topics like:

  • who owns what
  • the difference between song composition copyright and master recording copyright and why that matters
  • what a sync license is and what rights need to be addressed when using a song in a film or video
  • and lots more!

With all that knowledge under your belt, using the Agreement Template to license a piece of music will be a breeze—but just in case, each paragraph of the agreement is explained in detail.
