In Depth Look at Music Licensing
on August 13, 2010
Licensing your music is a great way to start an income stream and generate revenue for your band. Darren Wilsey's "The Musician's Guide to Licensing Music" is an in depth look at all of the facets of music licensing.
Not only does he explain all of the licensing terms and opportunities that exist for your music, he gives very good advice as to how to go about getting licensed as well.
With chapters about the players in the industry, agreements, and protecting yourself, Mr. Wilsey's advice will give you the knowledge to be ready when you have that first meeting with an industry player or contract to sign. The book also gives some really good advice as to how and why to make contacts in the industry if you want to be successful.
Chapters on how to get your music into each of the different media markets are the gravy in this book. With opportunities in advertising, television, radio, internet, films, digital media, and a host of other outlets, the book covers them all and covers them well.
By providing his own knowledge with a mix of advice from players in the industry (quoted throughout the book), Mr. Wilsey's book is a great place for all musicians to start once they decide it is in their best interest to license their tunes... which it is. - Scott @ Detone8.com
