Can I get just one license for a song that I will put on multiple albums?
Cover Song Licensing
No. For reporting and tracking reasons, you need a separate license for each release, even if the same song is used on multiple releases.

Custom Licensing
In some cases, you can request multiple uses on one request form. This depends on each unique scenario and is something you can discuss with our Custom Licensing expert during your consultation.

Can I split the license, and get just one license for two different formats?
Cover Song Licensing
No. We have to send separate paperwork for each different format you release. So, if you plan to distribute on multiple formats, such as CDs and digital downloads, you will need to buy a separate license for each, and we will have to charge our fee each time.

How are medleys handled? Do we have to get a license for each separate song part of the medley?
Cover Song Licensing
Yes. For medleys, each song part counts as a separate song, and requires separate royalties and our fee to process each part separately. Unfortunately, this is required by law. When adding medleys, add each song part as a separate song and provide the length in minutes and seconds of that song part. Note that medleys can be considered derivative works, which require special permission from the copyright holder. This depends on how the medley is constructed and varies case-by-case. If you have specific questions about how this applies to your medley, please contact us for details.

Custom Licensing
For custom licensing purposes, each song part of the medley counts as a song. In other words, if you have paid for Custom Handling services for up to five songs, this would cover only one medley with five song parts.

Custom Licensing
The copyright holders maintain total control of their works. This means they can set any fee, take all the time they need, and reject the license outright. Depending on your use, the cost will typically range from $200 to thousands.

If I do CDs and digital downloads, does that require two separate licenses?

What if I sell out and need to distribute more copies of my album?
Cover Song Licensing
It's up to you to monitor your sales and make sure you do not exceed what you have licensed. You can always come back to us and get a new license for additional units. If it's an exact reorder without changes, our fee is half-price. This makes it easy for you to license only what you need upfront and avoid paying too much in fees for reorders.
