When you get your license, it's yours for good and never expires. If you sell or stream more than you expected, you can always return to purchase more copies.
Loudr offers licenses for the following formats:
For example, when you creatively recreate "California Girls" in your home studio with Asiatic flutes and a sitar (and without Katy Perry), you've recorded a cover of someone else's copyrighted song. You own the recording, but someone else owns the song itself -- the lyrics, melody and song structure.Get Licenses Now
A mechanical license enables you to legally sell your song in stores like iTunes, Google Play and Bandcamp. It gives you the freedom to promote your music without worrying about getting a cease-and-desist notice or waking up to discover that your music has been taken down.
Obtaining licenses also means you're making sure the original songwriters get paid their share of royalties for their hard work, and that's awesome.Get Licenses Now
A mechanical license is a license that gives you permission to make and distribute copies of your recording of another person's copyrighted song (a.k.a, your cover song). These copies can take the form of CDs, digital downloads and ringtones, or, for those of you who are bringing back analog (in style, we might say), vinyl records and cassettes.
