The rights must be obtained from the copyright owner of the music, which is usually the publisher. You can find out who the publisher is by using ASCAP's Clearance Express (ACE) at http://www.ascap.com. Songs that are not represented by ASCAP might be found at the National Music Publishers' Association "Songfile" website http://www.nmpa.org. You will be provided with a contact at the publisher's Business Affairs or Licensing Department.Justiceinnyc said:I am trying to put together a budget for my screenplay, and was wondering if anyone knew how i would go about pricing music royalties. Is there a website that might list this information - like, say, on specific songs or whatnot?
Thanks in advance,
