Warner Music Group's Warner/Chappell Music, Inc and Warner Special Products, Inc have launched OneStopTrax, the first fully integrated online music licensing service from a major music company. With OneStopTrax, users can go on the Web to access affordable, pre-cleared music from a wide variety of well-known artists.
Catering to film and television music supervisors, festival and student filmmakers, and producers of industrial in-house presentations, OneStopTrax offers a one stop shopping approach to music licensing. Instead of having to go to separate companies in order to obtain the rights to a single piece of music, the OneStopTrax site enables users to acquire both music publishing and recorded music rights instantly, including licensing and payment, in one simple transaction. With OneStopTrax's affordability and breadth of content, users now have a quality alternative to production library music.
OneStopTrax is the culmination of an ongoing effort by Warner/Chappell Music; one of the worlds leading publishing companies, and Warner Special Products, the recorded music-licensing arm of Warner Music Group, to integrate business and marketing information with respect to music rights licensing.
In making the announcement Steve Scott, vice president, new media for Warner/Chappell Music, Inc. said, "Over the years, producers and music supervisors have expressed a need for a simple way to acquire the rights to great music. Many of them thought that for certain projects, using music from well-known artists was either too expensive or too complicated. With OneStopTrax, we're cutting out a lot of the legwork that was involved in music licensing, and providing producers and music supervisors with a solution that's affordable and convenient."
Bill Bishop, senior director, film and television music licensing for Warner Special Products said, "Our artists and labels have enthusiastically embraced OneStopTrax. The site will not only provide them with a way to gain increased exposure for their music, but also to generate additional revenue from licensing income."
