Music Licensing and Slide Music Programs

Post by mxdata » Mon Dec 31, 2007 5:44 pm

I see from several recent news articles that the recording industry is now pursuing prosecution of those who use unlicensed music as part of presentations at paid admission events. Any thoughts on how long it is going to take before this closes down the various multi-presenter slide-music program events? Or will the big slide program events eventually end up all being "talkies"? (does anybody still do those?)

My recollection is the amount of royalty that would be exacted is relatively small for these types of presentations. One could contact one of the organiizations such as BMI or ASCAP and determine what would be required.

Archive.org has a good library of tracks with licenses that would be workable for many presentations.
