Mechanical rights encompass the right to reproduce a piece of music – whether it’s being released as a CD, download, etc. Please note that if your release is a straight cover a mechanical license is required. For physical copies like CD and Vinyl, and one-time digital downloads, please fill out the form here. For the rest of the world, a license can be obtained by visiting each territory’s respective collection society.
