Sony/ATV Music Publishing has licensed its catalog of songs to FreeHand Systems to provide digital sheet music.

The publisher's music will also be available for FreeHand's MusicPad Pro, a portable, touch-screen unit that musicians, composers and students can use to display and work with the sheet music.

With the Sony/ATV deal, FreeHand customers will be able to access digital sheet music from such artists as the Beatles, Beck, David Crosby, Bob Dylan, the Everly Brothers, Jimi Hendrix, Graham Nash, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Richie Sambora, Stephen Stills and Hank Williams.

Charles Koppelman's CAK Entertainment advised FreeHand in its deal with Sony/ATV.
