someone’s copyright; i.e.,</em> to create original music. It’s as simple as that. There are only so many keys, chords, and options with respect to music, but as a producer, you’ll want to ensure that if you’re hiring someone to create music, that they’re not copying from other people; that they’re creating original work that’s based on some form of skill and judgment, it’s original to them or the people you’re hiring collectively, and it’s not copying other works.</p>\n<p>If a producer receives notice from another lawyer or artist or manager that the music in that person’s production infringes upon another person’s rights, they should contact their lawyer, and the lawyer should quickly thereafter contact the film insurance broker. <a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/102480/eo-insurance-for-film-and-tv-the-value-of-a-lawyer\" rel=\"noopener\">The lawyer’s role</a> would be to review the situation, see if it’s frivolous or legitimate<span style=\"font-style: italic;\">; e.g.,</span> it may be that there was a creative collaborator and we thought that there was an agreement with this person but there wasn’t, there may have been an unsigned <a href=\"/articles/does-eo-insurance-protect-against-claims-of-breach-of-contract\" rel=\"noopener\">contract</a>, <span style=\"font-style: italic;\">etc. </span>These things should have been figured out when the lawyer was doing their due diligence earlier but it’s possible that something fell through the cracks.</p>\n<p>Or someone may have just heard something in a movie and feels like something they created in their basement <a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">sounds similar</a>. There’s a variety of different possible claims that someone might make and the film producer should contact their lawyer immediately. Be upfront about the specific circumstances. Does the producer have a relationship with this person? Tell the lawyer everything and the lawyer will review it to determine if the demand is reasonable or not and what we’re collectively going to do about it.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/bid/103438/e-o-acquire-proper-permission\" rel=\"noopener\">How can a film producer obtain permission to use content protected by copyright?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/102723/e-o-insurance-how-much-of-your-productions-format-is-copyright-able\" rel=\"noopener\">How much of your production’s format is “copyrightable”?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">YouTube</span>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

It’s important that we review credits and recognize all the people involved in any kind of production. With respect to <a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">music</a>, it’s important that each song is referenced in the credits if you have told someone you’re getting the rights from that you’re going to include them in the credits.</p>\n<p>So, in a <a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">music synchronization license agreement</a> or a master use license agreement, or a composer agreement, one aspect of that is how you’re crediting the musicians, the record label (if there is one), the publisher (if there is one), and so it’s important that the credits of a production like a film reference the music. They may say “music by”, referring to the composer, or list all of the songs. Generally, if you’re someone like me who reads the credits of every production, there’s a whole list of songs at the end, and it’s fun to see what music was used in the production.</p>\n<p>There are different types of ways you can list the credits. It might say “courtesy of”, referring to a record label or publisher, it usually lists who performed the song, it should list who wrote the song, <em>etc. </em>It’s not going to list all the other instrumentalists or the producer; usually it’s the performer, the writer, and then who is providing the rights, meaning a record label or publisher.</p>\n<p>In your agreement with the music owner, it generally says, “these are your credits, but if the credits aren’t there or aren’t right, we aren’t in <a href=\"/articles/does-eo-insurance-protect-against-claims-of-breach-of-contract\" rel=\"noopener\">breach</a> of the agreement.” If there’s a mistake in the credits, you’ll still want the rights to use the music. This isn’t a free pass not to give people credits, but it’s an important part of any agreement where credits are being provided that the agreement says something of this nature.</p>\n<p>What sometimes people say is that: if it’s not repetitive or on purpose, it’s OK, but just to be safe and conservative, if you’ve given someone a credit, <em>credit them</em>. And that’s not just for composers or musicians; it’s for anybody who worked on your project. Getting credit is worth something. It can’t pay the rent to be credited but it’s part of the compensation that a composer or musician gets when their music is in a film production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">What about singers performing music in films?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/102723/e-o-insurance-how-much-of-your-productions-format-is-copyright-able\" rel=\"noopener\">How much of your production’s format is “copyrightable”?</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">YouTube</span>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

It’s important that we review credits and recognize all the people involved in any kind of production. With respect to <a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">music</a>, it’s important that each song is referenced in the credits if you have told someone you’re getting the rights from that you’re going to include them in the credits.</p>\n<p>So, in a <a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">music synchronization license agreement</a> or a master use license agreement, or a composer agreement, one aspect of that is how you’re crediting the musicians, the record label (if there is one), the publisher (if there is one), and so it’s important that the credits of a production like a film reference the music. They may say “music by”, referring to the composer, or list all of the songs. Generally, if you’re someone like me who reads the credits of every production, there’s a whole list of songs at the end, and it’s fun to see what music was used in the production.</p>\n<p>There are different types of ways you can list the credits. It might say “courtesy of”, referring to a record label or publisher, it usually lists who performed the song, it should list who wrote the song, <em>etc. </em>It’s not going to list all the other instrumentalists or the producer; usually it’s the performer, the writer, and then who is providing the rights, meaning a record label or publisher.</p>\n<p>In your agreement with the music owner, it generally says, “these are your credits, but if the credits aren’t there or aren’t right, we aren’t in <a href=\"/articles/does-eo-insurance-protect-against-claims-of-breach-of-contract\" rel=\"noopener\">breach</a> of the agreement.” If there’s a mistake in the credits, you’ll still want the rights to use the music. This isn’t a free pass not to give people credits, but it’s an important part of any agreement where credits are being provided that the agreement says something of this nature.</p>\n<p>What sometimes people say is that: if it’s not repetitive or on purpose, it’s OK, but just to be safe and conservative, if you’ve given someone a credit, <em>credit them</em>. And that’s not just for composers or musicians; it’s for anybody who worked on your project. Getting credit is worth something. It can’t pay the rent to be credited but it’s part of the compensation that a composer or musician gets when their music is in a film production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">What about singers performing music in films?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/102723/e-o-insurance-how-much-of-your-productions-format-is-copyright-able\" rel=\"noopener\">How much of your production’s format is “copyrightable”?</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">YouTube</span>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

risk is tied to the exposure. If five people see a movie, the risk is low; if 10 million people see a movie, the risk is high. Something could be on YouTube but only have 500 views and perhaps 500 people have seen it; the risk is fairly low. Regardless of the method of distribution, it’s really about the volume of people who have seen it.</p>\n<p>If someone has been wronged or their intellectual property (IP) rights have been <a href=\"/articles/how-can-you-make-a-film-like-the-social-network-without-getting-permission-from-mark-zuckerberg\" rel=\"noopener\">used in the production without their permission</a>, they will only contemplate a claim if they know about it, so it’s a question of visibility and exposure.</p>\n<p>With respect to an online platform that is easy to self-upload, self-distribute, such as YouTube, there are other remedies one could take that would not be available otherwise. <em>E.g.,</em> if a third party has their IP infringed – a piece of their artwork was shown in a feature film without their consent – if they see this on YouTube, they can simply report it.

It also covers lost rings, presents, gowns but does not cover the missing best man.</p>\n<h2 class=\"speakabletext\">Why Get Wedding Insurance?</h2>\n<p>Yikes:</p>\n<ul>\n<li class=\"speakabletext\">Alex and Robin spend months planning their summer wedding on a relative's farm. On their big day, a forest fire blocked access to the farm.

singing a song in a film, the first point is that if you’re a producer and you have someone singing in a film and it’s actually them singing (not a recording) a song that exists, you need permission to use the composition in the film. If you are recording someone singing a song in a film, then you don’t need to get the rights to use the original recording because you’re making the recording yourself. So, you don’t have to get the master rights from some record label; you’ve created the recording yourself.</p>\n<p>If you’re the producer and you’ve asked your director to tell the singer to add an extra chorus or change a verse around based on the storyline, you’re changing the song. There are two things to consider: <span style=\"font-weight: bold;\">1) </span>you may need to get some rights from the writer; if the performer went off script, you need their consent and<span style=\"font-weight: bold;\"> 2) </span>you need the right to change the composition. Whoever controls the original composition, they need to give consent to you changing around the words or the process or the order of the song. Same goes for translation; if the original song is in English and you want it to be in French in your movie, you need consent for the translation. Even if you hire a translator or use Google Translate, you’re not allowed to do that without getting consent for this translation that you have done.</p>\n<p>If you’re using a song in a film that is being performed by someone in the film or TV show, you need to make sure that if there are any changes to that composition, you need to get permission from whoever the composition originated with AND you need consent to use the new intellectual property created by whoever made those changes. However, as I said, if you’re making your own recording of a song, you don’t need to buy the recording of the original song, so that could save some money, but adds some hoops to jump through in terms of getting the proper permission.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-role-do-credits-play\" rel=\"noopener\">What role do music credits play?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/whats-a-music-exclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">What's a music exclusion?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurring the lines of music infringement law</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O Insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Byron Pascoe's film producer's E&amp;O videos</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

Even if you hire a translator or use Google Translate, you’re not allowed to do that without getting consent for this translation that you have done.</p>\n<p>If you’re using a song in a film that is being performed by someone in the film or TV show, you need to make sure that if there are any changes to that composition, you need to get permission from whoever the composition originated with AND you need consent to use the new intellectual property created by whoever made those changes. However, as I said, if you’re making your own recording of a song, you don’t need to buy the recording of the original song, so that could save some money, but adds some hoops to jump through in terms of getting the proper permission.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-role-do-credits-play\" rel=\"noopener\">What role do music credits play?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/whats-a-music-exclusion\" rel=\"noopener\">What's a music exclusion?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurring the lines of music infringement law</a></li>\n<li><strong>eBook</strong>: <a href=\"/errors-omissions-insurance-101\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer's E&amp;O Insurance 101</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Byron Pascoe's film producer's E&amp;O videos</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

consent to have music in film. Approximately 100,000 songs are uploaded to Spotify every day; there’s a lot of music that’s out there. Most music that is created and put out there in the world is created by independent artists who wrote and recorded their own music, and for them, they can give all the consents. They can grant the rights to use the recording and the composition.</p>\n<p>If there’s a record label involved, the label may have the right to give permission. If there’s a publisher involved, they may have the right; it really depends on who the creative collaborators are, who the other parties are (if there’s a record label, publisher, one person vs. many people). There’s a lot of music where there’s a lot of people involved. It’s not just co-writers; it’s also producers. Music producers oftentimes own and control a share of a composition. I work for producers, beatmakers, artists, all the different players, and I know from just their way of working together that they’re each composers/writers.</p>\n<p>You need to make sure that if there’s a lot of people credited on a song, that you’re getting permission from the right people. Don’t assume that the main artist is the only decision maker. You need to make sure that everybody who is listed on a song is dealt with in some way: either get permission from them personally or from the entity giving permission on behalf of everybody else. It’s important to get permission from everybody who was involved in the production or someone on their behalf.</p>\n<p>If there was a producer involved and s/he never gave consent to the artist to use the composition, or if they hadn’t clarified their splits of the composition, you want to make sure that they have done that. It’s important to do a “deep dive” on all music that you’re using to make sure that you’re being very detailed and specific about who may have been involved. What you want to avoid is for someone you’ve never heard of to come after you later to say, <em>“I was a producer on that track… I used to be in the band at that time and they never got consent from me to use the music.”</em> So, ask a lot of questions to the musicians you’re working with. If you want to have music in your production, make sure that you’re getting consent from everybody who has the right to give consent for that music to be in your production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/band-on-the-run-touring-insurance-tips-for-taking-your-show-on-the-road\" rel=\"noopener\">Band on the run: touring insurance tips</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">What about when film producers are unable to obtain music rights?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Singers performing music in a film</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurred Lines music infringement lawsuit</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Music licenses for non-original music used in a film production</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

consent to have music in film. Approximately 100,000 songs are uploaded to Spotify every day; there’s a lot of music that’s out there. Most music that is created and put out there in the world is created by independent artists who wrote and recorded their own music, and for them, they can give all the consents. They can grant the rights to use the recording and the composition.</p>\n<p>If there’s a record label involved, the label may have the right to give permission. If there’s a publisher involved, they may have the right; it really depends on who the creative collaborators are, who the other parties are (if there’s a record label, publisher, one person vs. many people). There’s a lot of music where there’s a lot of people involved. It’s not just co-writers; it’s also producers. Music producers oftentimes own and control a share of a composition. I work for producers, beatmakers, artists, all the different players, and I know from just their way of working together that they’re each composers/writers.</p>\n<p>You need to make sure that if there’s a lot of people credited on a song, that you’re getting permission from the right people. Don’t assume that the main artist is the only decision maker. You need to make sure that everybody who is listed on a song is dealt with in some way: either get permission from them personally or from the entity giving permission on behalf of everybody else. It’s important to get permission from everybody who was involved in the production or someone on their behalf.</p>\n<p>If there was a producer involved and s/he never gave consent to the artist to use the composition, or if they hadn’t clarified their splits of the composition, you want to make sure that they have done that. It’s important to do a “deep dive” on all music that you’re using to make sure that you’re being very detailed and specific about who may have been involved. What you want to avoid is for someone you’ve never heard of to come after you later to say, <em>“I was a producer on that track… I used to be in the band at that time and they never got consent from me to use the music.”</em> So, ask a lot of questions to the musicians you’re working with. If you want to have music in your production, make sure that you’re getting consent from everybody who has the right to give consent for that music to be in your production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/band-on-the-run-touring-insurance-tips-for-taking-your-show-on-the-road\" rel=\"noopener\">Band on the run: touring insurance tips</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">What about when film producers are unable to obtain music rights?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Singers performing music in a film</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurred Lines music infringement lawsuit</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Music licenses for non-original music used in a film production</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

It’s important to get permission from everybody who was involved in the production or someone on their behalf.</p>\n<p>If there was a producer involved and s/he never gave consent to the artist to use the composition, or if they hadn’t clarified their splits of the composition, you want to make sure that they have done that. It’s important to do a “deep dive” on all music that you’re using to make sure that you’re being very detailed and specific about who may have been involved. What you want to avoid is for someone you’ve never heard of to come after you later to say, <em>“I was a producer on that track… I used to be in the band at that time and they never got consent from me to use the music.”</em> So, ask a lot of questions to the musicians you’re working with. If you want to have music in your production, make sure that you’re getting consent from everybody who has the right to give consent for that music to be in your production.</p>\n<p style=\"text-align: right;\"><strong><em>Byron Pascoe</em></strong><em> is an entertainment lawyer and partner at Edwards Creative Law</em></p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p><span style=\"font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;\">Are you a producer in Canada or the US?</span> Get a quote for <a href=\"https://www.frontrowinsurance.com/en/sectors/e-o-insurance\">producer’s E&amp;O insurance here</a>.</p>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<h3>Related:</h3>\n<ul>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/band-on-the-run-touring-insurance-tips-for-taking-your-show-on-the-road\" rel=\"noopener\">Band on the run: touring insurance tips</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-about-when-film-producers-are-unable-to-obtain-music-rights\" rel=\"noopener\">What about when film producers are unable to obtain music rights?</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/what-are-considerations-around-singers-performing-music-in-a-film\" rel=\"noopener\">Singers performing music in a film</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/blurring-the-lines-of-music-infringement-law-three-perspectives-in-one\" rel=\"noopener\">Blurred Lines music infringement lawsuit</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/music-licenses-for-non-original-music-used-in-a-film-production\" rel=\"noopener\">Music licenses for non-original music used in a film production</a></li>\n<li><a href=\"/articles/articles/bid/27709/film-eo-insurance-clearances-procedures-for-film-producers-part-1-of-3\" rel=\"noopener\">Producer’s E&amp;O clearance procedures</a></li>\n<li><strong>YouTube</strong>: <a href=\"https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJtqQkUwXbiiN5OPy3Xv2AcutMxzQhKyn\" rel=\"nofollow noopener\">Errors and omissions insurance (E&amp;O) – Byron Pascoe</a></li>\n</ul>\n<p>&nbsp;</p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"><strong>About</strong>: </span><a href=\"https://edwardslaw.ca/\" rel=\"noopener\" style=\"font-style: italic;\">Edwards Creative Law</a><span style=\"font-style: italic;\"> - Canada's Entertainment Law Boutique™</span></p>\n<p style=\"font-size: 14px;\"><span style=\"font-style: italic;\">We’re entertainment lawyers who understand the business of creative industries.

Approximately 100,000 songs are uploaded to Spotify every day; there’s a lot of music that’s out there. Most music that is created and put out there in the world is created by independent artists who wrote and recorded their own music, and for them, they can give all the consents. They can grant the rights to use the recording and the composition.</p>\n<p>If there’s a record label involved, the label may have the right to give permission. If there’s a publisher involved, they may have the right; it really depends on who the creative collaborators are, who the other parties are (if there’s a record label, publisher, one person vs. many people). There’s a lot of music where there’s a lot of people involved. It’s not just co-writers; it’s also producers. Music producers oftentimes own and control a share of a composition. I work for producers, beatmakers, artists, all the different players, and I know from just their way of working together that they’re each composers/writers.</p>\n<p>You need to make sure that if there’s a lot of people credited on a song, that you’re getting permission from the right people. Don’t assume that the main artist is the only decision maker. You need to make sure that everybody who is listed on a song is dealt with in some way: either get permission from them personally or from the entity giving permission on behalf of everybody else. It’s important to get permission from everybody who was involved in the production or someone on their behalf.</p>\n<p>If there was a producer involved and s/he never gave consent to the artist to use the composition, or if they hadn’t clarified their splits of the composition, you want to make sure that they have done that. It’s important to do a “deep dive” on all music that you’re using to make sure that you’re being very detailed and specific about who may have been involved. What you want to avoid is for someone you’ve never heard of to come after you later to say, <em>“I was a producer on that track… I used to be in the band at that time and they never got consent from me to use the music.”</em> So, ask a lot of questions to the musicians you’re working with.
