PostSubject: Music Rights   Tue Oct 05, 2010 1:39 pm

This is the email that I'm going to send to Sandra from Sony music. It's almost identical to the previous email with a few differences. Please make any additions or changes if you can Smile

Dear Catherine,

My name is Sam Lee, and I am a student from Richmond Green Secondary School. I wish to speak to you about music rights.
Our Musical Theatre class will be performing a play as a summative evaluation. We will be singing numerous songs owned by Sony music live. In addition, we will be putting on a night show of the performance and selling tickets to the public. The reason for the sale of tickets is because we want to cover the costs of putting on the show.

We have recently contacted SOCAN, and they informed us that we are exempt because the show is curriculum related and is being performed as a final examination. However, because we will be selling tickets and putting on an evening performance to cover our costs, they asked us to contact you in order to obtain the rights to the music.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Sam Lee

I think you should ask about music copyrights for the website as well, if it's not too much work. It would help if there was music there too.

Delly, there are 12 songs. We're not too sure about the price for the rights yet. I don't think it would be too much though

We contacted the record company, but we found out that it has nothing to do with the record company, so now we need to contact the publishers, which we are in the process of doing.

Taking chances has been approved gratis as well. However, if a parent or someone videotapes it and puts it online, then a fee will be charged:(

Well at least you tried. Even if they don't respond, you still have the emails to show that you tried and that's all that matters Smile
