Our Fees Cover .......
For material that may be subject to intellectual property or personal rights protections, rights clearance involves:
Identifying rights that may exist in both the work as a whole and individual elements;
Determining whether the client or a third party owns the applicable rights;
Evaluating whether permission is required for the intended use; and
if permission is required, identifying the owner and obtaining a license or other relevant permission.
We will also obtain or prepare license agreements from/with the rights owners. We will review and ensure that the agreements accurately reflect the major deal points. We will oversee the signature process and issue invoices to you on behalf of the rights owner for the payments of all fees. At your request, we can also administer the payments and transmittal of documents between all parties.
In addition to clearing the materials listed above, we can also offer the following services:
Celebrity name and likeness clearances;
Product placement/trademark clearances;
Documentary/script review for clearance issues;
On-site or off-site production attorney services* for scripted or non-scripted productions;
Rights clearances for merchandise/brand licensing; and
Music Supervision services.
*20% discount for first-time clients does not apply to this service.
More than any other clearances, music clearances can hold up a production or send it over budget. Music clearances require careful planning and an understanding of the various rights involved. Do you know that each part of a song you hear on the radio has different rights controlled by different (or the same) copyright owners? You may need permission from one or multiple owners depending on the rights you need. Whether you need mechanical rights, synchronization rights, performing rights or the rights to publish the lyrics, we can help you. And, because we have contacts in the industry, we may be able to help you find a composer who can compose an original jingle or piece of music that you/your client could own for a fraction of the cost of licensing a popular tune. Alternatively, we might be able to point you to a music library or a public domain song that might meet your needs. But, If you are stuck on using the song performed by your favorite singer in your project or campaign, you may also need permission from the artist who sings the song, depending on the subject matter of your commercial or how the music is featured in your production. Let us help you navigate the world of music clearances.
