Synchronization Licensing in the 21st Century

With mechanical royalties declining, music publishers need to maximize their revenues from other available sources. Perhaps the most lucrative of these sources is synchronization licensing -- the granting of rights for the use of music in television programs, motion pictures and commercials.

At the same time, independent films with low music budgets are becoming more and more popular, putting downward pressure on the license fees that publishers can charge, In this session, we'll explore the ways that music can be used in TV, movies and advertisements, how these uses are cleared, and whether publishers can do anything to increase their returns from these uses.
