Music on tv, copyright question?

Hi all.

I recently got a music publishing deal offered. I composed all of the music myself, but paid someone on Fiverr to perform a violin line. When buying, I got the ‘commerical use’ along with it. I’m slightly confused about commerical use vs. full broadcast rights use (there wasn’t an option for this when I bought).

Do I need to contact them in order to get ‘full broadcast rights’ if my song is going to be potentially played on TV?

Sounds good. I haven’t signed anything yet, just a bit confused about the licensing.

If you are so good that movie and TV people are interested in you, why not raise your rates across the board big time and give every package commercial use?

If you want to consider doing such high level work in a place.that takes 20% of.your money and doesn’t protect you properly, why not pay yourself for what you are really worth?

It troubles me that people want to serve both super low level clients and high production companies with the same gig. The value varies hugely.

Hi Humanissocial,

Sorry if my message wasn’t originally clear but I am a buyer not a seller. I paid someone to play a violin line, that I wrote myself, but they performed. I have a commercial license from the violinist.

Aha I see.

You’ll have to speak to the seller. Usually sellers write the music, don’t perform music already written.

When you inquire with the seller make sure you tell them how it may be used.

Thanks for the response, I will do that right now!
