My main task for the afternoon was investigating feasibility and cost for using the track galvanize by the Chemical Brothers for the multimedia marketing website. With so many small jobs consistently popping up, good organisation and the need for prioritisation really is a must.

Things are never as simple as they first appear. Firstly, I had to research which record label the Chemical Brothers are currently signed to. I found the answer to be Virgin Records USA. However, this is not the same Virgin Records as owned by the Virgin Business Empire and Richard Branson. I found out that EMI actually owns Virgin Records. I then rang up the London EMI copyright office and found out whom I needed to speak too.

I sent a form with details of the track, its usage and the nature of our business. I am still waiting to hear back on the cost for usage rights.
