    Hi there,

    I recently found out that I trailer I composed for an exclusive library was placed on an unknown video that was featured on more than 20 SKY channels and more than 10 FOX channels.

    Now, newbie question, I received back-end royalties from my PRO but no license fee from the library (nor any communication to say that this track of mine was sold). Is this ok?

    Sync fees are drying up and it’s quite possible none was charged by the library. Is it ok? Well, I doubt your paperwork says they are required to charge a sync fee for every placement, so in that sense it’s up to them…

    i presume you just mean in production music and TV music? i imagine other parts of the production music industry such as trailers are not affected.

    such as trailers are not affected.

    funny thing is…this was from a trailer album. Anyway, I thought, since this is a high end library, that sync fees were involved each time a client download and use a track. My mistake…

    but when you say high end do you mean high end trailer libraries like audiomachine, Colossal, Really Slow Motion, Immediate?

    or just high end production library as there is a huge difference. a lot of high end production libraries will put out trailer music albums because its pretty much a genre now but that doesnt mean they have the high end clients that pay the big syncs.

    You’re right. Not from those libraries you mentioned
