While playing to Fifa, it occurred to me that there is probably a license that EA pay to musicians to play their songs in their game.
Does anyone know if there is a standard license for indie games, to be able to play commercial songs in the game? Either for the intro and for the game itself, like FIFA does.
I did a brief search and the suggestion is to contact the publisher of the specific group/singer; but 90% of the time they probably won't even read such email. Is this the only way?
Of course this won't apply for free music that is distributed to be freely used for any use; my question is specifically for commercial music from decently known artists.
