What is sync licensing? Synchronisation is licensing a piece of recorded music to visuals, be that an advertisement, movie, TV show, online video or video game. In order for a client to license a piece of music they must clear two copyrights which are the publishing and masters. For the clearance of these two copyrights a client will traditionally pay an upfront fee to clear both, but certain territories and media work differently.
