Feb 13, 201929 minutes


DMG Clearances works with some of the biggest artists, brands, and media on the planet, getting samples cleared and licenses in order for music used in a wide array of applications.

She discusses some of DMG's high-profile projects and clients, current and incoming trends facing the world of licensing and clearances, how the business has changed most significantly since DMG was founded in 1996, and some tough lessons that artists have learned by not taking sample clearance seriously enough.
