The demand for music in TV shows, films, and commercials is at an all time high. Over the last six years, global TV production activity has doubled, not to mention the explosion of online social video marketing and advertising. To meet their music needs for all these uses brands and production houses are turning to production music libraries to find music more efficiently and cheaper than licensing commercial music. This is your opportunity to invest in a catalog of over 600 tracks of production music that has generated $5,466 in royalties in the last 12 months.

This music has been used in over 270 shows and will continue to be worked by publishers who have an incentive to get placements for this catalog. These publishers make money whenever these songs get placed in television programming. And if you win this auction, you will too...but without having to do any of the work!

This catalog includes tracks from various genres: hip-hop, cinematic, electronic dance music, and more. This diversity of musical styles has allowed for placements in various types of programming from NHL Hockey, to VH1 reality TV, to shows on National Geographic, and more. As additional placements are found for this music, you will earn additional royalties.
