When you've added configurations to your license request click the update button to find out your estimated royalty due.  Each configuration is different and may have a different rate. For example a CD configuration will have a royalty rate of .091 if the song is 5 min. or less. Or if a song is over 5 min. the rate will be .0175 per minute and rounded up to the nearest minute. The end result will always be based on our "total administered share" of the song and will show up in the royalty per unit section of the request.

Below is a helpful list of the types of rates you can expect to pay when licensing songs and/or artist recordings on our website. 

*We reserve the right to change rates. These rates are non-commercial rates (customers that are making limited copies). If you have questions about our rates you may email [email protected].
