You must either own the rights to the master you
bring to us for duplication or have permission from
the owner. Our agreement to duplicate your discs is
based on this. We reserve the right to refuse or halt
any duplication job that we feel may violate copyright
laws. To make sure there are no delays you should provide
written proof of any applicable licensing agreement.
Even if you own the actual recording, you must still
obtain permission to legally duplicate the songs you
did not write, unless they are old enough to be in
the public domain (generally 50 years after the death
of the songwriter). In Canada licensing of most songs
is handled by the CMRRA, (www.cmrra.ca)
and also by SODRAC (www.sodrac.ca),
although in some cases you may have to contact the
publisher directly. If you go to the CMRRA’s
site you can search for song names in their
database to find out if they handle licensing for the songs in question.
If you have any question specific to copyrights, please
contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
