How Artists Control Their Music Use In Politics

posted on 16/08/2016

Music by popular artists is often used by big brands and companies to promote their products and image. Politicans often make use of popular music and songs by artists and musicians, but sometimes without permission and approval by the artist.

The video above highlights how music licensing and usage is managed in the USA, with 3 main performing rights organisations responsible for managing music licensing and usage: Ascap, BMI and SESAC.

Whether a celebrity, brand or politician wishes to use an artist's music for their own purpose, they must seek licensing or approval using one of the performing rights organisations responsible for the artist's content in that country.
