Only $12 + royalties per song

Affordable Song Licensing is the most affordable and straightforward way to release your rendition of a song that you didn’t write. There are no complex volume discounts or terms in fine print that will catch you off-guard at checkout. We want to keep it simple, AND AFFORDABLE. $12 plus royalties will get you proof that we licensed your song according to the steps required by Compulsory Law . It’s that easy.

License your cover song

After you’ve given us the song(s) you’re covering on your release, we track down the rights owner and provide you with a confirmation to purchase the licenses. After your payment clears, we send out the required notices and royalties to the copyright holder. You will instantly receive a downloadable Licensing Certificate after the notices and royalties have been sent.
