Buying Rights To A Song

These can be easily purchased through a performing rights organization (PRO), which you can do online through their websites. You can also find contact information for music publishers and ask for rights to specific songs.

While it is possible to get permission or playing rights directly from an artist, this is typically difficult unless you know the musician or composer personally. You can find Creative Commons, royalty-free, and public domain music online through several sites, but these do not give you access to popular songs.

When you want to play music in your business, you need to get a commercial license from a performing rights organization (PRO), find public domain or Creative Commons music, or even ask the artist directly for use of their song.

It is possible to get permission to use a song online by buying the rights through a PRO, using a commercial music streaming service, or finding inexpensive royalty-free music. Since many business owners just like you have had this concern over the years, there are several websites and services dedicated to helping you get the best music for your business.

The first place to find a song you want to play in your business is a PRO. These organizations are music societies with massive catalogues who manage legal access to these catalogues on behalf of artists.

By interacting with customers like you, PROs ensure that artists are paid fairly for their songs, recordings, or compositions. When you contract with a PRO, you can get access to their catalogue for a set amount of time.

For most songs, it is better to contact the music publisher than the artist directly, but if you happen to know a musician or composer personally, you can get their written permission to use their music. You should pay them for this access, but it is possible some musicians will grant you access for free.

If all of these options sound like too much frustrating work, and you want access to the best popular music without worrying about the details of licensing, there are commercial streaming music services like Cloud Cover Music that manage the legal side of things for you for a monthly subscription fee. You can use curated playlists or find the songs you want to make your own playlist.

"Sweet ba ba!" If you've spent any time in bars with a jukebox, or at karaoke nights, you've probably heard that familiar refrain more times than you'd like. Did you ever stop to consider that the artists and songwriters behind Neil Diamond's most overplayed song are getting a payout every time you hear it Cha-ching.

Even if you've never written a song in your life, you can invest in song royalties. There are various platforms now for buying and selling music rights, so artists can sell off a portion of their song or album rights and investors can buy those rights in order to collect royalties. In addition to investing in song royalties, some of these platforms also let you invest in other types of music royalties as well as book publishing, television, and movie royalties.

A song might have the potential to top the charts, but if it falls off the charts just as quickly, it's not necessarily the best investment. You'll get a brief boost and then fall off in royalties rather than an ongoing, long-term stream of passive income. Instead of looking for the next big hit, you want to look for music that already has proven longevity. If it's been earning steady royalties for a decade or longer, you can confidently invest knowing it will probably continue to earn royalties for years to come.

You want to know the source of the royalties you're buying and what kind of event triggers a payout. Are you buying royalties that pay out when a song is performed, when it's played on the radio, or when it's streamed through a streaming service like Spotify Radio and physical copies of music are on their way out the door, while streaming is likely to stick around for a good while.
