Now.... How to get it done.
Lyle Holmes
I just completed a feature film with music on the soundtrack from 26 bands from 9 countries. The issue of musical rights is hudge in film and television. You nailed the biggest challenge for the growth of all sites which carry user created content. Music rights management. Most clips that contain music use music produced by someone else. I think there's a huge hidden time bomb for My Space in all the music clips attached to video files. When Murdock starts collecting on the hundred-plus million a year guarantee from Google, whose going to have their hands out? How about BMI and ASCAP? It's going to be a mess.
