Something to Think About When Drafting Licenses. Reuters reports that "Songs don't remain the same for TV shows on DVD." From the article: "More often, though, skyrocketing music-clearance fees are becoming major stumbling blocks for DVD reissues, often delaying or even completely derailing releases. Take 'WKRP in Cincinnati,' for example: The 1970s sitcom used so much classic rock that it would cost 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment a mint to clear the tracks. Fox has suggested that it still is considering releasing 'WKRP,' but others are not optimistic that the comedy and similar shows of its kind will ever make it into the market."
