I’m from southern California and one of the reason why I usually avoid SF is that it’s too damn expensive. My recommendation is take lots of money cuz’ you’ll need it. Other than that you’ll enjoy other places such as Yosemite. Also, try and visit Sequoia and King Canyons National Park. Here’s all you need to know, Visit California

Thanks for your input! :)

Hi! I’m looking for travel recommendations and advice about spending a few days around San Fran, CA region with my brother and father in the middle of April. Would love some help if you got it.

We’re looking at Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Napa Valley, San Fran, Big Sur…?

Do you have any recommendations of things we should do? Places we should see? Information we should know?

Thank you so much! :)

Authors (or Staff), I need your help.

I have a question from a potential buyer about what license he should buy. The thing is, I don’t think that he is allowed to use my music this way…

He has an app that takes pictures from the user’s phone and turns them into video slideshows. In this app, he wants to give the user the ability to pick the music that would go behind their slideshow video. He’s wondering what license he has to buy in order to offer one of my songs in his library of song choices for all the users of the app.

I don’t think this is allowed, right? Because he’s essentially offering them as free-use to the user. Am I correct?

Maybe it would be fine if I was a non-exclusive author? I’m not.

Thanks for your help!
Phil

PS. as a quick side note, can I suggest that AdRev authors don’t copy/paste their email conversations from AdRev directly into this thread. There’s a confidentially notice at the bottom of our correspondence with them, so it’s probably best to adhere to this and explain our discussions with them here, in our own terms.

Okay, yep! Thanks for the heads up.

Their response is quick. I asked if we could opt-out of all future submission and it sounds like we can’t… I suggested a check-box on the upload page for easy opting-out. Their reply was:

“I hear ya. This is a new YouTube feature that they’ve activated, so we’re now working with them to remedy the situation. Thanks,

Jesse”

...Remedy the situation? They make it sound like the issue is on YouTube’s end. But sounds they are getting the message. :bigwink:

Update: Just heard back from AdRev. I was able to completely opt out. They said it takes 24-48 hours for it to take effect.

Same here, all done.

So in the meantime, I suggest AdRev registered composers here get in touch with AdRev support and request that they opt out of such advertising programs.

Hopefully they’ll look to add an opt-out for this type of advertising at the registration stage in the future, which would be massively helpful to RF licensing musicians, like us.

Where and how does one “Opt-Out” of this extra ad thing? Is there a link? Or, something specific I should say in an email to someone in particular at AdRev? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Thanks so much!

J.R.

+1. Yes, how do you do it? Thanks.

Edit: Ryan, we were typing at the same time. Thanks for your help.

Wait…you’re who? Just looked at your credits on your website after reading your profile. Albums by Relient K, Anberlin, Underoath, Emery, Kutless, TFK, Audio A, Falling Up… many of those were hugely important to my teenage years. Great to have you here! I’m Phil. And a fan of yours. Good to meet you. :)

Really cool! But this looks time-consuming. Maybe if I had time to play even a normal video game…
