COLUMBUS (Tara Morgan) -- The OSU marching band plays on, but may have to pull some of their songs.

Mark Greenburg, who is the president of Tresona Multimedia, says his company issues custom arrangement licenses for the band to legally play and perform music.

Greenburg says some music publishers called to cancel licenses when Jon Waters' firing hit the headlines.

"We fielded a tremendous number of calls from music publishers who said wow if this is some highly sexualized perverted culture we really don't want Ohio State playing our music," said Greenburg.

Greenburg says the publishers also don't want anything to do with a rush to judgement against Waters either if that is the case.

An OSU spokesman says as it stands, there's no trademark licensing issues with the university itself, but they're checking with the band about songs it plays.Some Music Publishers Pulling Songs from OSU Band Over Scandal
