Thats what we do
Sync: Synchronization, or “sync” for short, is a music license granted by the holder of the copyright of a particular composition, allowing the licensee to synchronize (“sync”) music with some kind of visual media output (film, television shows, advertisements, video games, accompanying website music, movie trailers, etc.)
In order to ”sync” a sound recording you need to clear both the rights to the composition and clear the rights to the actual sound recording.
Publishing: Songwriters earn royalties when their compositions are downloaded, streamed, and used around the world. And it’s the job of a Publishing Administrator to register the songwriters’ compositions around the world, monitor when and where the compositions are used, license compositions for use, collect the royalties generated, and then distribute them to the songwriters. Neighboring Rights: Neighboring rights are a form of copyright linked to commercially released recordings. When a record is played on radio, TV or performed in public a royalty is due both to the owner of the master recording and the performing artist. Performing artists includes singers, instrumentalists and, if they play on the track, studio producers.
