    SAMPLE CLEARANCE

    Saranne Tardelli-Reid has worked extensively throughout the music industry for over 15 years in all areas of licensing and business affairs and is now the leading authority on sample clearance matters in the UK.

    Saranne has worked as a media & entertainment lawyer both in house and at several leading music law firms. Her wealth of experience has led to her being called on as an expert witness in copyright trials, a speaker at industry panels including In The City, Miami Winter Music Conference, London Calling, The Great Escape and Midem and she is frequently invited to guest lecture on the music copyright element of various university law programmes.

    Whilst the physical act of sampling itself has become easier and easier due to readily available technology the clearance process itself is still fraught with difficulty and it is vitally important that it is carried out in a professional, methodical manner to prevent a myriad of problems down the line. Our clients tell of sleepless nights before they cleared samples awaiting the dreaded “It’s so and so lawyers here, you have sampled our client’s work without permission, we’ll see you in court!” This is where Sample Clearance Services comes in.

    We take all the hassle of the process away from you, including researching difficult to find copyright owners, negotiating the best deal and drawing up and completing the relevant paperwork. Saranne heads a team of music industry professionals with a broad and diverse range of skills, including Rupert H, music supervision and syncs (The Iron Lady, Moonrise Kingdom and The Liability).
