TV Music Doesn’t Make It To DVD

From the Hollywood Reporter: The song doesn’t remain the same. All about how with so many old TV shows coming out on DVD, the music industry is getting greedy and charging exorbinant prices for the music that was used in these shows. That leads to the price of the DVD set being much higher than it should be, or different songs with lower licensing fees being substituted in when the show goes to DVD. And some classic shows, like WKRP in Cincinnati, haven’t even come out on DVD yet, and probably never will because the price of the music is just too high.

Just another reason the recording industry at it stands today needs to go away. After all, what percentage of these “higher fees” do you think is going to the artists, and what percentage goes to the lawyers and executives?
