HOLLYWOOD, Calif. and LONDON, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- National Association of Record Industry Professionals ( president Tess Taylor leads a music delegation from Hollywood to London this week for meetings to protect intellectual property, preserve creativity, and create new opportunities for music whose uses contribute to the national economies of the United States, the United Kingdom and world culture.

While in London the delegation will be featured at five music acquisition sessions for American television and film productions, and meet with international music organizations and with government agencies, including the American Embassy, which work to strengthen protection of intellectual property rights.

NARIP brings popular film and television music supervisors, Andrea von Foerster (Grey's Anatomy) and Chris Mollere (Vampire Diaries) to London to conduct educational programs for the British music industry. These programs create an opportunity to develop relationships and encourage the use of British music in American television and film productions.

Both supervisors seek music for current American projects. Music publishers, record executives, artist managers and others will present music to them in London for consideration. Such music placements generate licensing fees and public performance royalties to their creators and owners, stimulate music sales, increase awareness, and can provide an important vehicle for developing new artists to recognition and success.

"Artists and songwriters, and the record and music publishing industries, have suffered unprecedented losses from illegal downloads and piracy, but the demand for great music will always exist, and where there is demand, there is potential to restore a robust and healthy environment from which creativity and consumers around the world benefit," says Taylor, President of NARIP and creator of its Music Supervisor Sessions.

Two NARIP Sessions in London are SOLD OUT (Nov 17), more dates have been added (Nov 16).

Event details:

NARIP Sessions have sold out in four cities. Participants have enjoyed music placements in True Blood and Dexter.

"Some of my favorite songs and albums of all time are from British artists," says Mollere. Von Foerster adds, "The most consistently amazing music comes from the UK. I look forward to meeting people in London who can help me discover the next big thing to place in my projects."
