hi, one of my clients would like to put a music clip on her site. I have been trying to get permission, but I never got a response from my email and the phone number I have for the production company is disconnected. Any suggestions?
jimlongo
Is it being used for commercial purposes? If not I wouldn't worry about it. That advice comes from my composer side, my lawyer side is more cautious.
minidiapolis
Yes, its for commercial purposes. That 's why I want to be careful.
jimlongo
Have you tried the Harry Fox Agency?
minidiapolis
I never heard of that. What is it?
jimlongo
They're a clearing house for music rights
minidiapolis
I will definitely be checking it out. Thanks for the tip!
minidiapolis
I found a phone number, but they haven't responded. Any suggestions?
jimlongo
You could try ASCAP or BMI, the main performing rights organizations.

Here's an ASCAP page covering this sort of rights clearance.

Do you pay if a clip is under 60 seconds?
jimlongo
Length of use wouldn't have any determination.
Nowadays people license 1 second samples for new uses in records.

Really it probably won't cost much, but you should contact them to get more details.

Contact who? The song is Stand Out by Tye Tribett and GA. One of the phone numbers that's listed on the ASCAP website is disconnected and I left a message with the other number but there haven't returned my call.

I would fill out this form and see what happens -
