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?July 23, 2019 at 8:22 am #32751
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…July 23, 2019 at 9:51 am #32752

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.July 23, 2019 at 4:24 pm #32753
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…July 24, 2019 at 12:53 am #32754

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.July 24, 2019 at 7:22 am #32756
You’re right. Not from those libraries you mentioned
