MAKING A SOUND RECORDING OF AN ARRANGEMENT FROM studioDH

If a group or individual makes a sound recording of a studioDH arrangement, whether for a CD, an uploaded file on the internet, a digital download (ex: via iTunes, Amazon.com, etc.), whether for sale or not for sale, including learning tracks, then said group must request a compulsory license (mechanical or synchronization) for reproducing the sound recording (audio and/or video). A Digital Phonorecords Delivery (DPD) is also known as a Digital Download. If you wish to distribute a Digital Download from from example iTunes and/or Amazon.com, whether for sale or not for sale, you are required to pay a mechanical licensing fee. If you wish to reproduce and/or distribute learning tracks (CD or digital downloads), whether for sale or not for sale, you are required to pay a mechanical licensing fee. If you reproduce a video with sound recording, you are required to pay a synchronization license. Licenses are paid to the copyright holders or organizations who represent licensing for the copyright holders.

FINDING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDER

Look at the bottom of page one on the sheet music to find the copyright holder of the arrangement.

If it is © David Harrington, then you will pay licensing fees directly to David Harrington. If it is NOT © David Harrington, then you will need to find out who handles the licensing for the copyright holder of that song. In many cases, Harry Fox Agency will represent the copyright holder for sound recordings. However, this is not always the case.

Harry Fox Agency does NOT represent studioDH or David Harrington.
