Music Licensing: Legal Empowerment for Filmmakers

The Black TV & Film Collective and The Filmmakers Legal partnered on a monthly series of Know Your Rights: Legal Empowerment for Filmmakers. Next up: an April 15th conversation on Music Licensing For Films.

Music is a necessary component in films. Whether it’s a well-known artist or your friend’s music produced in his basement, the proper licensing contracts are required. Get a better understanding of synchronization and master use agreements. Courtesy of the team from the Filmmakers Legal Clinic.

During this chat they will break down exactly what the necessary agreements and terms are, when they should be used, and how. Don’t miss this opportunity to work smarter not harder and meet the knowledgeable team from the Filmmakers Legal Clinic.

Hope to see you there
