I then enclosed two copies of this mechanical license all filled out and signed, with a check for the proper amount, and a self addressed stamped envelope so they could sign both copies and then send one back to me for my records.
And that's pretty much it babies.
I'm sending out the personal check/non Harry Fox stuff out tomorrow and then...with the exception of one composer who's in the middle of changing representation, I will be officially paid up license-wise. As soon as the remaining composer gets me information of her new representation, I'll send her stuff out and be 100% done with all that.
Actually, while book keeping for me is by far the least 'fun' part of this whole thing- there is a certain satisfaction in knowing that all the composers and lyricists have been properly compensated for their awesome music.
Will get back to a nice musical post next. But...figured I needed to give you a nuts n' bolts update as well- since the nuts n' bolts is really the stuff that us artists kinda know nothing about and should.
