    here’s a ‘fun’ fact I learned today: Fox News only does direct licensing, usually in the form of blanket deals. So no royalties, and usually nothing to the composers…

    Well at least they are completely unbiased when it comes to reporting the news…

    Maybe not completely. I received royalties from FOX Business on my most recent BMI statement.The music came from an exclusive PMA library.

    I don’t know for sure if Fox Business and Fox News are separate entities (they are separate channels), but if you’re getting royalties there, then they must be.

    Yeah I get dozens of pages from Fox Sports every quarter, that’s a very different organization.

    I got the confirmation on this direct licensing sadness from a PRO and the management of one of the biggest libraries – one you guys have probably written for at some point.

    I’ve had two tracks become themes for shows on Fox News, (playing dozens of times a day, five or more days a week) with sadly nothing to show for it. The library DID keep all their blanket fee though…

    @ Mark, oh the fury! That’s just not right. Ethically, morally, it’s so very wrong. What a shame.
