Mechanical License

A mechanical license is granted when someone wants to record a song and then subsequently distribute and sell copies of that song via downloads, streaming, or physical product (i.e. - CDs, vinyl records). The statutory mechanical royalty that must be paid at the time the license is obtained is 9.1 cents per copy to be distributed. 

Master Use License

A master use license is granted when someone wants to use an existing recording of a song. For film, television, video games and advertising, a master use license must be obtained in conjunction with the synch license described above so that the user has permission to a) use the recording, and b) synch it with a timed visual sequence (i.e. - television, film video game, commercial. For radio usage, only a master use license is necessary. 

Videogram

A videogram license is granted when someone who previously obtained a synch license subsequently wishes to distribute via DVD or streaming a movie, television show, video game or other timed visual sequence that incorporates a song/musical composition and a recording of it. 

Print License

A print license is granted when someone wants to print a song in a songbook ("folio"), sheet music, magazine, book or other printed media.
