More Licensing Terms

Now I know I have posted a whole page on Music Licensing Terms I thought I would make a quick one for those of you who have NO clue as to what is going on. I am trying to help everyone get a better understanding as to the craft you are trying to get into.

For all of you out there who have the whole understanding maybe you can today or sometime do the right thing and try to share that knowledge with someone who has no clue. Pay it Forward so to say. Enjoy!
