I Read That the MLC Allows Blanket Licensing for Digital Downloads, Does That Mean I Don't Need to Get a License?
With the implementation of the Music Modernization Act, we saw some significant changes to music licensing. While the Mechanical Licensing Collective offers the possibility of blanket licensing for Digital Downloads, major online stores like iTunes still do require individuals to obtain licensing for their cover songs. Most digital distributors also still require proof of licensing for Digital Downloads as part of their policies. Unless your distributor explicitly states that you do not need a digital download license, we recommend obtaining the appropriate license for your use through our Cover Song licensing services.
