Synchronization License and Compulsory License

A couple of days ago I was reading an article about copyright issues and then encountered a case about that same subject. I decided to look up the case and read it. I read it and the dispute was between two companies. One which obtained a compulsory license and failed to acquire a synchronization license. What part of the Copyright act is that in, where does it say you must acquire a synchronization license for certain works?
 
Thanks for your time.

I'm not aware that the copyright act specifically addresses synchronizing licenses.  However synchronizing involves copying a copyrighted work and perhaps also involves creating a derivative work based on a copyrighted work.  Performing either of those activities without permission of the copyright holder (absent an exception) would be copyright infringement.
