What’s a mechanical license?
A mechanical license pays the songwriter or publisher who owns the copyright to a composition when you create and release your recording on CDs, digital downloads and streams, vinyl, cassettes, and even ringtones.
You need a mechanical license whenever you record and sell/give away a cover version of another musician’s song. Once you have that license secured you can legally distribute someone else’s composition.
