Whither the beard wrangler?

TV shows and movies frequently feature characters with five o'clock shadows or a day or so worth of beard growth.

How do I easily and effortlessly find out DEFINITIVELY if a song is in the Public Domain for free use in a TV show?

Here is an example... My Boss: "We want to use the Can Can song. Our music guy has done a recording for us. Is it in the Public Domain?" Me: "Yes. The composer, J.

My Bosses Boss: "About 5 years ago, I tried to clear this song for use in a TV production and discovered that it was NOT in the Public Domain. Elle Vator, can you research this and let us know the answer two months ago?" [more inside]

I want to be on TV

Have you noticed all the cool background music in television commericals these days? A lot of it is electronica, some ambient, some house, some trip-hop, etc. Who creates all of this music, and how do you break into the 'Television Commerical Music Production' business? How can I drop the hot beat for the next L'Oreal commercial?
