I would like to put a 30 second sample of a Cover song I have recorded online. I am in the process of getting the mechanical License, but am not sure if I need to get the Digital License just for a 30 second sample.
I’ve seen everywhere on the web (personal websites, amazon, cdnow, etc.) samples of songs that are being sold online. Also many people who have their own websites, host the cover songs they have recorded, sometimes full versions, sometimes just samples.
The Digital license is a completed process if I wanted to put the entire song online, but if I don’t need to go that route, I’d rather not.
