    Using Published Music in Political campaign

    sponsored links

    I have a friend who wants me to record a new version of a beatles song to use in a local campaign for a city councel seat. I am wondering how to go about obtain ing permission and paying appropriate royalties. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Your first stop when it comes to any questions regarding Copyright should always be this:


    Pretty simple huh?

    Now, AFAIK, The Beatles and Politicians doon't mix very well, so although you might be able to (maybe) force a compulsory license on the song and do it anyway....I would highly....let me rephrase this...I WOULD HIGHLY recommend that you draft a contract that does not hold you in any way liable to lawsuits due to your arrangement for the song.
