Mosaic Music Publishing Acquires Interest In Aerosmith Catalogue

Mosaic Music Publishing, a joint venture between Mosaic Media
Group and CDP
Capital Communications, has purchased a 50% interest in a
catalogue of songs
composed by Aerosmith. Aerosmith will continue to own the
other 50% and
Mosaic will be responsible for the administration of the
catalogue and its
assets worldwide.

The catalogue is comprised of seven albums produced from
1973-1982:
Aerosmith, Get Your Wings, Toys in the Attic, Rocks, Draw the
Line, Night in
the Ruts and Rock in a Hard Place. The albums encompass 53
songs including
the hits "Walk This Way," "Back in the Saddle," "Toys in the
Attic," "Sweet
Emotion," and "Dream On," which rap artist Eminem recently
re-mixed and
released as "Sing For the Moment" and is featured on his ten
million
worldwide selling CD "The Eminem Show." The catalogue was
acquired from
Daksel, LLC and Seldak, LLC companies operated by Aerosmith's
early managers
Steve Leber and David Krebs.

With Mosaic Music Publishing having recently acquired the
Hamstein catalogue
the addition of the Aerosmith library affords Mosaic an even
deeper infusion
into the classic rock publishing arena. Mosaic now has one of
the largest
rock and country libraries which boasts over 8,000 titles,
including the
entire ZZ Top Catalog, 40 No. 1 country hits, and the current
George Strait
single "Living and Living Well," which stayed at #1 for several
weeks on the
Billboard and R&R's country chart.

"I am both honored and excited to be representing the
copyrights of this
legendary rock group," stated president of Mosaic Music
Publishing Lionel
Conway. "This is a perfect addition to the ZZ Top classics we
currently own,
and we will certainly do it justice."

"This acquisition affirms our commitment to music publishing,"
stated Henry
Winterstern, co-founder and managing partner of CDP Capital
Entertainment.
"Our goal at CDP Capital Entertainment is to create a
synergistic portfolio
that leverages each individual asset. We look forward to
taking the
Aerosmith catalogue to the next level with our existing
interests in film and
television production, distribution, and talent management."

"We love this music and are thrilled to own it," stated Allen
Shapiro,
president of Mosaic Media Group. "Music such as Aerosmith's
has the ability
to be used in all aspects of entertainment including motion
pictures,
television, commercials and recordings. We are confident our
team will do a
great job with it."

Mosaic's Allen Shapiro and legal counsel Peter Paterno from
King, Holmes,
Paterno & Berliner, LLP negotiated the deal on behalf of Mosaic
Music
Publishing.
