4.0 out of 5 stars In Depth Look at Music Licensing, August 13, 2010
This review is from: The Musician's Guide to Licensing Music: How to Get Your Music into Film, TV, Advertising, Digital Media & Beyond (Paperback)
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Can I See Your License?, December 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Musician's Guide to Licensing Music: How to Get Your Music into Film, TV, Advertising, Digital Media & Beyond (Paperback)
One thing every musician should know is how to protect their music! This book will show you exactly how to do that. It explains all the different types of licenses that can apply to your music from top to bottom. It is very informative and leaves no question unanswered. It is written very well and guides you into different categories of licensing such as Master License, Mechanical License, etc. It offers many routes to getting your music heard. Such as music publishers, online marketing, and distribution resources. But most importantly, it reminds you that your music has value and can be a great source of cash flow! Understanding the licensing process and what licensees can do for you is the main focus of this book. It's as simple as 1,2,3. If you create music, then this is your map to make sure you get what you deserve when deciding to release your music to others who need it. As for myself personally, I wouldn't begin to think about releasing any of my music before I read this book. All you musicians out there bleed sweat and tears into your music without a doubt. So make sure you get what you have coming. And understand what is being offered when your music does get placed! This book will tell you everything and then some!

This review is from: The Musician's Guide to Licensing Music: How to Get Your Music into Film, TV, Advertising, Digital Media & Beyond (Paperback)
I use this in my international licensing class and it is a great resource for us. Has very clear explanations and discusses many copyright issues and how to properly licensing your own music. I would recommend for the musician who has some experience with copyright - not for the newbie.
