A new music licensing agreement crafted by performing rights organization Broadcast Music (BMI) and the ABC Network has been expanded to cover Web video and other multimedia.

Under the agreement, users can view full episodes of several series including "Desperate Housewives," which features theme and background music by BMI composers Danny Elfman and Steve Jablonsky. Visitors to the site can also sample music showcased in ABC shows and then link to other sites to purchase soundtracks or the latest episodes of their favorite shows for viewing on portable devices.
