NARIP Events: How To Market & License Music For Video Games, Nov. 19 in L.A.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. (MuseWire) – You are cordially invited to NARIP's ART OF THE MUSIC DEAL: What Happens Before You $ign on the Dotted Line? How To Market & License Music For Video Games on Thursday, November 19, 2009 in Los Angeles. Confirmed speakers include Electronic Arts' Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing STEVE SCHNUR and music and interactive software entertainment attorney JIM CHARNE.
With declining record sales, the focus on placing music in film, TV and other media such as video games has skyrocketed. Placements are the new coin of the realm, and in this latest of NARIP’s “Art of the Music Deal” series, we bring in top experts to face off in a live negotiation of key deal points and contractual issues in a music-in-video-game license agreement.
Join us for this special session with music and interactive software entertainment attorney Jim Charne and Worldwide Executive of Music and Marketing, and President of Artwerk Music Group for Electronic Arts Steve Schnur (other speakers TBA). We will also discuss marketing music for video games to make it more attractive to buyers, where to find them and how to put yourself in line for the most favorable possible deal.
These experts come together to give you the inside track on major deal points, what they mean and what leverage you have to negotiate the best possible deal.
Most people think they can just hand a negotiation to a lawyer, and leave it at that. But as a professional, you need to be aware of the process and deal points, too, and what the implications to your artists’ careers may be.
Most importantly, you will see HOW a license deal is negotiated and be involved in the process.
Get educated about the art of deal-making!
