Licensed Music – Core Considerations | Creative Opportunities

Thursday 11th July: 14.00 - 14.45 : Room 6

How do you get licensed music into your game?  Who should you approach and why?  What are the rights issues and costs involved? 

After our two leading experts explain the commercial parameters, key contractual components and practicalities/planning considerations surrounding basic music licensing, they will outline some interesting and intriguing creative opportunities and benefits that can arise when a signed music artist also gets involved in the original game score, citing recent examples from their own projects to explore the potential added value such collaborations can provide to videogames and VR.
