Experts Rights Clearance/Licensing – Music, Film & TV clips, Celebrities, Photos, Art, Books


If you want to use a clip from a film or TV program, there are multiple clearances to be obtained. Required clearances include the owner of the film or TV program, all performers who appear in the clip, and possibly the Writers and Directors Guilds. Music in the clip also requires separate permissions from the music publisher and the record company.


TIP: Movie companies tend to charge high fees and some do not allow their clips to be used. Some performers are difficult to locate. Stars can charge extremely high fees, or their agents can ignore your requests altogetherThese considerations mean that clips are often not available or affordable for small projects such as in-house use, and are very expensive and very time-consuming to clear for other uses such as TV commercials.
