In this clip from www.artistshousemusic.org – In this excerpt from a panel discussion held at a 2008 meeting of the American Bar Association’s Sports & Entertainment Law Forum, the panelists discuss the patchwork of ways in which songs are licensed for use in TV and films in the USA, and what it means in terms of licensing fees and royalty payments for publishers and copyright holders. The panelists illustrate these complexities through examples drawn from projects like House, Life on Mars, Gossip Girl and Don’t Forget The Lyrics!.
