CueSongs seals BMG contract

CueSongs has finished a contract with BMG Rights Management which will enable the online music licensing center to provide selected catalogues from artists such as Groove Armada or Ulrich Schnauss.

This contract means that now CueSongs has deals in place with all the top music publishers for online licensing that includes Sony/ATV, Warner Chappell, Universal Music Publishing and EMI Music Publishing. It also includes top independent publishers such as Peer Music, Music Sales and Imagem.

CueSongs also certifies music from top as well as independent right holders including Ministry of Sound, Westbury Music, IRL, District 6 Publishing, Distiller Records, Independiente, Minds on Fire, Bryan Morrison Music, Skint, Tummy Touch, Kudos Records, New State Entertainment, Black Hole Recordings, Cooking Vinyl, Infectious, Real World, Universal Music and Sony Music.

The service has not signed deals with EMI Music and Warner Music till now. Ed Averdieck, the chief executive officer of CueSongs told that with these new agreements, they were able to provide clients a selection of music from both exciting and established new artists for the original productions.

He added that video production is also going on via the roof as companies make promotional videos for YouTube and their own websites as a part of the campaigns.

Most of the times, videos tend to be of either poor quality or unlicensed, but now for the very first time, the video producers would not have to compromise with the kind of music they use.
