The publisher’s job is to over see the smooth transition of licensing rights between the film company and the music producer.The publisher must clear the music rights before the composition is excepted for logging. This means that the person who created the music/lyrics, will receive proper credit for the title if it is used in the film. It is also the publisher’s job to explain the licensing process to all parties involved with the project.
While contemplating the future of entertainment I discovered that the local Indy Film producer needs to network with the local Indy Music producer in order to stream line the licensing process . This can be done with assistance of a local publisher who understands intellectual property . This can also be achieved by networking with an open mind and understanding that we must work together in order to achieve our creative and artistic goals.
