    Correct. It’s a MUCH better organization than “Our Major Three” over here.

    If it’s in a “Library”, and was not placed by a Sync Agent or someone that negotiates Sync Fees/One Stops. You might not have any Sync fee monies coming. A lot of the libraries are now subscription services, and if there are sync fees attached they normally keep them. Check your contract, and see what it says..

    Please take no offense, but take offense. I have noticed that the word “experimental” gets thrown around SO much. BUT, it’s ALL talk and no “Gas”.
    You’re dealing with a “SLOUGH” of industry professionals here, that used the MLR as practically a Bible. Were you expecting to do VERY little research, and get 1000% return?! Ready to go from 0-to-60 in One Second? Drop some links, and Let’s hear Your “Experimental”.

    Use the “Access Music Libraries”, upper right, under Hot Links. You can filter the libraries there.

    It takes some days, but it is “well worth it to from the numbers and work ALL the way thru!!”

    Make sure you read ALL of the comments, especially the ones from about 7 to 10 years ago. LOT of great information, and it will help you make VERY informed decisions!!

    I have not read the entire postings thread yet; but a couple of the BIGGEST problems that I have seen, and heard from companies are:

    1) The Amount of content that is now either the SAME cues/songs/tracks being seen by “clientele” for MUCH different prices on several libraries.

    AND/OR

    2) The amount of Royalty free samples that are ending up in several catalogs, and being picked up by services like tune-sat; when these “composers” were being paid and/or signed waivers that say they are in control of the music, and it is not anywhere else to be found.

    Also, having branched from working with several Majors simultaneously; to now almost exclusively working directly with Ad Agencies, and Supervisors. There literally almost is “no difference between Non-Exclusive and Exclusive in terms of placements”; unless the library/company has some great clients like standard network TV. It’s all now a wash and spread out WAY too thin.

    Control means options, and if you can’t keep the control at least negotiate a Semi-Exclusive.

    It’s strange that I no longer submit for music searches, and emergency briefs (long or short turn-around) But now I see them in my inbox more than ever.

    I now equate it to chasing Fire Engines, and Ambulances just so you can pass out your business card..

    Im not sure Beatslinger if you were asking me but there would be no Sync fee as it is Direct licensing..

    Hi there JohnMac, this is actually directed towards LionWings. The reason that I am wondering about this is because “for me” this would be quite disturbing that/if a company “like” Carl’s Jr. would be able to grab a usage for something that “should” not have been direct licensed; and in fact should have been an actual licensing with a negotiated sync fee attached.

    Somebody had to have made money “somewhere” because this is not a “Network or someone that should have had a subscription account”.

    Correct me if I am taking this the wrong way. But.. No one got in touch with you to let you know how much it synced for? As well to issue you your percentage of the sync fee?
