Skype Call: Behind the Scenes of Music Sample Licensing

Behind the Scenes of Music Sample Licensing


Due to a flight cancelation, this session will be done via Skype.

With Hip Hop and R&B dominating the charts, sampling is now an integral component of songwriting. But while many creators believe their songs are covered by fair use, the truth is that all samples must be properly licensed. In this session, attendees will hear stories from the sample-clearance trenches and learn about the legal issues surrounding music sampling, the process of licensing a song featuring samples, and how new online crate-digging and sample clearance services can help simplify it.
