This article describes music licensing, which is the term applied to the process of placing music on visual creative projects, such as film soundtracks (film, video, digital), television programs, and advertising campaigns. As more and more music is being made available online for different uses, it is natural for production people to turn to the internet to find music because you can buy anything on it. Savvy bands are spending time on film bulletin boards offering up their music for soundtrack use, indie labels are offering licensing options on their websites, and composers are banding together and starting their own online write-for-hire agencies.
