The DVD Music Licensing Guide is a comprehensive music copyright handbook giving expert advice for anyone who wishes to use music in a DVD production. Don’t get caught out, learn how to license music correctly – and legally!
Ivan was inspired to write this guide due to the increase of copyright enquiries being received by his company, Musicalities, from eminent TV & video producers, independent film makers, school & theatrical productions, universities & colleges and even makers of wedding DVDs. This guide will help its readers to understand more fully about music copyright and how to navigate the way through what might be a music copyright minefield. It is very important to understand which music rights have to be cleared or licensed prior to the production, manufacture or distribution of a DVD – all of which is explained in the guide.
With ever changing technology, DVDs in many formats are being created by both amateurs and professionals and using any unlicensed music could be an extremely costly mistake. The author has worked within the music publishing and music copyright business for many years and is able to pass on through this guide first class advice and tips that he has learnt from his experience.
