“LICENSED TO ILL: THE FUTURE OF BEAT LICENSING IN SYNCH”
Tuesday, January 11, 2022
2:30pm – 3:30pm | Zoom Webinar Broadcast
This panel explores the world of beat licensing, from the perspective of those who collect royalties, do synch licenses, and create opportunities for these newly-created songs. How do we work with creators and beat licensors to best monetize these new works?
This brand-new area comes with a whole new set of questions from licensors. Our two panelists from the Guild of Music Supervisors, along with a representative from Splice, will be discussing issues like:
- Can a beat licensing deal affect clearing that song for synch down the line?
- What if multiple artists make the same licensed sample their hook?
- How can content ID tell what sample has been used and not get confused?
- Do we account for licensed samples in cue sheets?
If you have questions for our panelists, email them to [email protected].
