    The below is from Abby North that was posted to the wrong section.

    I’ve been thinking about this post for a while, and figured I’d add my two cents. I own a music library (SSPMC), and I also do music supervision, mainly for networks that most of the production libraries have blanket deals with.

    It’s incredibly easy to make a mistake with a cue. So many are submitted both to my library, and to be considered for shows I’m working on. As I import submissions into iTunes, I always try to put a prefix on the file, indicating the source and whether or not it’s clear, but I’m human, and therefore fallible.

    I also try to delete every cue I’m not adding to my library, but again, it’s so easy to make a mistake in managing tens of thousands of cues.

    If you have submitted a cue to a library that inadvertently got it into a show, I think the most effective plan would be to alert the library that your cue was submitted by them to a given show, and let them do a non-exclusive deal with you for that one show.

    I highly doubt anyone intentionally used a cue without having a license to do so.

    What is a reversion clause?
    Thanks!
    Roz


    Any rights you sign away in a contract revert back to you after a specific time or if certain criteria isn’t met (as an example, an income threshold or placements).

    Art, all posts have a square image by the name of the user that started the topic.Most of them are blank, and the ones that do display (such as yours) are the MLR Report one.

    Any chance of not displaying them?


    The only easy way to do this is to turn off “avatars” on the whole site. Not a bad thing and probably makes the site a bit faster. I’m sure someone will now want the “avatars” turned back on! 🙂

    Robert Safir over at Linkedin left this answer: “Art, if you use ASCAP’s Quick Form, you simply need to add the publisher’s share (50%), and not state the territory. I haven’t used the long form for this, but I imagine you’d want to put US, Canada, and World.”

    Depends on the library. A higher end library might do it but generally the composer would.

    P.S.Do you know the best World Fusion libraries?


    There is no way to know that and “good” is a relative term.

    Not to be evasive but what works best for one composer, and a library, could/would be different for another. It’s all about a lot of cues with patience and persistence, spread around a number of libraries. You really need a few hundred and be at it for a few years. Probably best with 1000 to 1500 tracks (I’m at about 400 and been at it about 6 years). There are a lot of variables so YMMV.

    Don’t know anything about World Fusion libraries but I’m sure someone will post here.

    “It would be great to see a Contract Length parameter added to the search engine.”

    Ask and you may sometimes receive! 🙂

    “Contract Length” search field has been added.

    I think it’s more than reasonable to ask for an income threshold, if a library want’s to own a copyright without paying in advance. What that amount might be would vary with each individual.

    I think just about all of the royalty free library sites have that.
