So this guy who has a very simple website on various aspects of computer and internet stuff, (the site looks like something from 1995!) asked to license a track of mine as intro music for various YouTube videos he hopes to put up one day. I know what I would charge for a single use but any thoughts on multiple uses? Thanks!May 16, 2017 at 4:58 pm #27399
I would go for the home run on a licensing fee because you will get literally cents on the streaming side of it.
I hate to sound like a pessimist but it’s a reality in this business. I have my tracks on streaming commercials that get me less than one cent per hit.May 17, 2017 at 6:46 am #27404
Oh yeah, I know all about fraction of pennies per stream. I have music on Spotify and Pandora that remind of that all the time! This guy is very low level so I made an offer and we’ll see if he bites.May 17, 2017 at 7:00 am #27405
I remembered reading a post by a member here – Michael Nickolas – who published a book on industry licensing fees. I did a quick search with how much I could remember and found this. Hope it helps (with future negotiations).May 17, 2017 at 7:38 am #27406
Thanks for remembering Paolo. That was six years ago and it’s not available anymore. I had a single use internet video listed at $94 back then, but like daveydad says, the question is what about multiple uses.
