well for the 14th year in a row, the olympics used— Trevor Rabin (@Rabin_News) August 22, 2016
my music from "Remember the Titans" for the closing ceremony.... https://t.co/f8UBqHcUxu
...and judging from many of the fan comments I've read, there is a fundamental misapprehension occurring. I can certainly understand the mindset of the comments, as provenance and royalties are hot-button topics these days in prevailing discussion of IP administration. Did Trevor get paid for the use of "Titans' Spirit" in the Olympic broadcast? No. That's because he was already paid to write the score for Remember The Titans. It's not benevolence or exploitation, it is business as usual.
Trevor does not retain the rights to his scoring, but it has nothing to do with mismanagement. That is simply how it is for anything produced for a motion picture. Although characters and/or brand names and existing songs can be licensed from outside entities, everything specifically created for a particular film remains the intellectual property of the production company and/or the studio, unless the applicable contract specifies otherwise. A director may retain final cut for his/her movie, but he/she does not own the movie after it is released. All elements - including the score - lay in the hands of the concern which commissioned them at the outset. Trevor is paid for his work - very well, actually - but that is the end of it. Of course, those of you who read my entry regarding a plea for a future score compilation are aware of this, or perhaps you were already in possession of that knowledge. Trevor has mentioned this fact in at least one prior interview. So you may wish to kindly correct the fallacy when you encounter it in online discourse.
