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…November 2, 2018 at 4:52 am #31159
Yikes!November 2, 2018 at 7:55 am #31161
Well at least they are completely unbiased when it comes to reporting the news…November 2, 2018 at 9:29 am #31162

Maybe not completely. I received royalties from FOX Business on my most recent BMI statement.The music came from an exclusive PMA library.November 2, 2018 at 12:00 pm #31163
I get paid on Fox Business and Fox Sports.November 2, 2018 at 12:46 pm #31164
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…November 2, 2018 at 6:50 pm #31168
@ Mark, oh the fury! That’s just not right. Ethically, morally, it’s so very wrong. What a shame.
