If you're in the market to license your music to TV, film, video
games or other advertisers, check out Pump Audio. With your permission, Pump Audio
will include your music in their database for promotion and possible licensing to their clients. You keep all copyright,
ownership and publishing rights, and receive 35% of the licensing fees billed to their production clients if your
music is used. There's NO submission fee, it's non-exclusive, and you retain 100% ownership of your songs. Based on feedback we've heard from artists, this is one of the best, most effective song licensing agencies around. However, the turnaround time to receive a response from your initial submission is quite long. Even so, well worth investigating. See also, Radio and TV. Updated 10/07/2010.
