Music licenses are agreements between you, the 'licensee', "typically" the owners of musical compositions (publishers) and/or recordings (record labels) who are collectively known as 'licensors'. These licenses can take many forms, most commonly as synchronization, mechanical, and performance.

Why should you bother?
Owners of musical works, 'licensors', take unauthorized uses of their assets very seriously. Usage without prerequisite approvals can result in increased fees for damages or, potentially, a lawsuit.
Who do you need to talk to for a music license?
To decipher who owns certain musical works, Pilot does extensive research into copyright ownership. This process can be time-consuming and unproductive if you do not know where to look and is just the start of the process. Getting answers and approvals from publishers and record labels can take months to a year, yet using Pilot the process is accelerated.
How does Pilot make this process easier?
We compile over fifteen categories of essential terms that are artfully crafted into request letters to form the basis of negotiation for your request. We are in constant contact with the approval parties and key decision-makers in the Music Industry, leading to prompt responses and approvals. Once approvals have been met, we draft, distribute, proof, and exchange payments and licenses to make sure everything is wrapped-up efficiently/correctly for all involved.
