CAN I MAKE AN ORIGINAL RECORDING OF A COPYRIGHTED SONG?

Yes, but you must contact the copyright owner and obtain a “mechanical license.” You will be charged a fee, the amount of which is determined by the “statutory rate” as set forth in the Copyright Law. The statutory rate, for the period of January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2003 is 8 cents, for the period of January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2005 it is 8.5 cents, and for the period of January 1, 2006 to December 31, 2007 it is 9.1 cents. This includes recordings of church services, concerts, musicals, or any programs that include copyrighted music.
