Music Synchronization License Agreement

This is a synchronization license to a song written by a deceased party to be used in an independent film. This article will talk about a very important way to make money by licensing your music to music users such as television and film production companies, advertising agencies and others. As I often write, it`s not easy to make money with your songs or musical compositions. This is done through synchronization licenses and master`s licenses. You must have the owner or control of the publication if you want to grant your music license. The publisher generally controls the work and is the one who obtains licenses for the music. As a composer or songwriter, you can give your songs or music advice to any music user for a fee. To do this, you must own or control the music itself (and the sound recording) to give the other party the right to use the music. In our example, a master license is required to use the ac/DCs version of the song. A sync license allows a music user to use a particular piece of music in combination with visual media such as a movie, TV production, video or commercial. NOTE: If you need master privileges for sound recording, you also need to get the sync rights to the music composition. I wrote a song with a co-author, but I produced the song myself so that I own the master.

So my question is this: if I have co-authors, but I own the master, I still need the permission (a written agreement) of the co-authors or can I enter into a synchronization agreement without their agreement/collaboration (as long as I pay my co-author their 50% share of the songwriter`s fee if I pass them?) Below is an example of a dubbing agreement and a master`s degree. You write a song (music and text) that you call “Love, Love, Love” and you make a simple piano/singing demo of the song. Every time you post a recording of a song written by someone else in a video format, even if it`s only a small part of the song, you need a sync license. Sync licenses are most used for YouTube videos, cover song videos, wedding videos, and commercial and corporate videos. For example, if you post a YouTube video of your band playing a Rolling Stones song, even if you only use part of the song, you`ll need a sync license. If you like a DVD playing a Beach Boys song or singing Lyrics by Mariah Carey, you need a sync license.
