What Is a Cue Sheet?

This is a necessary component of sync licensing.

A cue sheet is a listing of all the music used in a television program or motion picture by title, composer, publisher, timing and type of usage (e.g., background, feature, theme) usually prepared by the producer of the program or film. When your music is used in this capacity, you are entitled to royalties.

It is usually the responsibility of the producer to send these cue sheets to your Performing Rights Organization (PRO), however, if you have it and would like us to check up on it, feel free to contact us!
