Music is an integral part of the entertainment experience surrounding WWEs live events, television programs, and pay-per-views. We compose and record most of our music, including our Superstar entrance themes, in our recording studio. In addition to our own music, we license popular performance artists who have contributed music for WWE programs. Currently, Sony BMG/Columbia Records distributes our albums to major retailers nationwide.
Licensing net revenues, including music, were $32.2 million, $20.9 million and $21.8 million, representing 8%, 6% and 6% of total net revenues in fiscal 2006, 2005 and 2004, respectively.
