Alright. I was misled by “only if music is GEMA liable”. Thought it was referring to “only if you are a german composer represented by GEMA.
Some of my recent examples;
BMW National radio paid 5K
Delta Faucets/ Amazon / Alexa Co-op paid 7K for the license (airs mostly on cable)
$2000 Jingle for a seed company airing in Minnesota Only on radio
Those prices are what you asked directly to the ad agency or what the library you have the track with asked?
Thanks Mark, so you say libraries usually determine their TV-licensing price according to just “territorial coverage”?
This morning they told me some libraries, during the process of buying the track and establishing the price for the license, asked them to define the “size” of the expected audience in the TV channels. That information is quite hard to imagine I guess…that’s the reason of my first post.June 9, 2020 at 4:46 am in reply to: Looking for merciless critiques on mixing/mastering #35125
Thanks woodsdenis! 😉June 8, 2020 at 11:52 am in reply to: Looking for merciless critiques on mixing/mastering #35121
yes, they asked me to have the sound of the engine very loud (and I believe they are right, it’s a bike advert).May 20, 2020 at 2:25 am in reply to: Asked to write a song for a video to be shared on a company’s social media #35046
I’ve done hundreds of commercials for companies.
My advice is to ask them to sign a documents where you clearly report at least:
– number of tracks and/or edits
– deadlines for each track
– number of revisions
– media of distribution (worldwide, local area…)
– exclusivity/non exclusivity
– in case of exclusivity, the period of time of exclusivity
– payment method and timingNovember 4, 2019 at 12:35 am in reply to: Reality check: how much $ to expect from YouTube streams #33587
My Pro statements show roughly $80 per 1 Mil streams.
…that’s depressing! Maybe I’d better find a new purpose for these tracks…
I think we’re talking about a sub-publisher actually…
You’re right. Not from those libraries you mentioned
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…
