 Glasgow pre-launch briefing – Friday 3rd April 2009




Talent & Rights Negotiation Group
Music FastClear for Independent Producers
Background

 The BBC has had a totally unique and highly successful
  in-house FastClear system since January 2006 enabling
  in-house producers to autoclear & submit their music
  clearances

 It has always been an aspiration to extend this to
  Independent Producers working for the BBC

 That ambition finally realised this week with the launch
  of Music FastClear for Independent Producers

  The vast majority of uses will be autoclearable –
  main caveats are:

 Maximum duration of 3 mins per track per programme
 No Beatles repertoire
 No original film soundtracks




     Talent & Rights Negotiation Group
Music FastClear for Independent Producers
Where the use/recording falls outside of BBC music licences and cannot be
autocleared and where the music is absolutely editorially essential to your
programme, it will be possible to Submit a Clearance to the music copyright
team - eg
non PPL member
titles music
changing words of songs (consent only)
grand rights clearances on dramatico musical works


PLEASE NOTE: there is likely to be a fee involved in such clearances (at
cost to your production budget, unless consent issue only), and sometimes
it will not be possible for us to secure a clearance for the rights you require

Public Service Rights:
Independents making content for the BBC will be able to clear music
for BBC Public Service rights using this system
  Television
  Radio
  On-demand use via the iPlayer

Distribution Rights

  BBC Worldwide pays for its own separate licence with PPL for
   world television sales (inc VOD), DVD, DTO and CD Audiobooks

  It is therefore possible for Independents to clear the above rights
   where they are being distributed by BBC Worldwide (even if the
   content is a commission for ITV or another UK broadcaster)

  Process and costs are set out in the Distribution Agreement with
   BBC Worldwide

We are expecting all Independents making content for
              the BBC to use this system

  As of next week the Music Copyright team will be
  directing you to FastClear rather than undertaking
     clearances by phone or via off system email
                   correspondence
