Just wondering if any of you have an agent or deal with an entertainment lawyer on a regular basis. (I know these are tow different types of services)
I have a situation where a composition of mine is going to be played in a million dollar Christmas Display in Canada. The people (mall management) would also like to use the music for radio and TV spots. I was told by SOCAN that they do not collect royalties for these situations. Apparently in Canada a commerical under 60 seconds does not apply. We have not yet discussed a flat fee for the music. Should this be my option?
This whole scenario has confused me. I thought that all radio and TV played generated royalties. Does anyone have an opinion on this? Should I consult an entertainment lawyer? Any insight would be very appreciated.
All the very best,
