Intellectual Property - Licensing Information
An Intellectual Property Release Form (IPR Form) must be completed, signed and dated for every new order. It is an industry standard indemnity form where you state if you have the right to manufacture the content on your disc.

  • Mechanical Licensing

    Mechanical Licensing is most commonly required for the reproduction of Audio/Music CDs. If you're performing your own version (commonly referred to as a 'cover' version) of someone else's song, Mechanical Licensing is a type of royalty that must be paid for each copy of the song that gets reproduced. Separate licensing agreements must be made for each individual 'cover' song.

  • Master Licensing
     
    If you are using the original version of someone else's intellectual property from CD, DVD, television, movie, radio, etc., you will require Master Licensing for the right to use that original content. This applies to audio/music/sounds as well as video, and examples include 'samples' and 'sound bytes' regardless of how short the duration is.
     
    Important: Taking a sample or sound-byte (regardless of duration) and altering it in any way does not make it your original composition. Licensing is still required any time you have used content or a creation that is not completely your own.
     
    Important: If you use someone else's video content that includes 'sound' you will likely have to deal with the licensing of the video and the audio/sound separately.

  • Making a Data/CDROM Disc?
     
    Third-party utilities, drivers, applications and shareware commonly have licensing or distribution requirements - even if there is no fee or royalty involved. This includes such common applications such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, Quicktime, Real Audio, etc. Utilities such as these must first be checked with the vendor to see if they require distribution agreements.
