What is a Music Sync Licensing Company?
Music sync licensing companies, such as BE Music, are organizations that represent artists to brand organizations that want to use an artist’s music in the form of visual media. A music sync license is a contract agreement that takes place between brands and artists or music publishers, permitting the brand to use the artist’s music legally, whether it be for commercial use or visual media. These licensing agreements prevent brands from breaking copyright law and allow artists to receive payment for their work. There are three main parts to a music license: the media, term, and territory. These parts dictate where the music will be played, for how long, and if it will be broadcasted nationally or internationally. In the sync world, these brands tend to use this music in advertisements, television, movies, video games, etc. Advertising agencies and sync licensing companies are often working directly with each other for sync placements. By using certain songs, these licenses allow for the brand and the artist to gain exposure.
