Okay, so you’re probably not going to jail, but in light of some expensive legal proceedings against several large media replication companies between 2000 and 2002, Crown Media Manufacturing, (along with all other legitimate duplication companies) requires all CDaudio, CDrom and DVD clients submitting projects for replication to include documentation that proves all of the content on their master is licensed.
This procedure has been implemented to protect creators of original content, not to impede the production of legitimate projects by our clients. Each order requires a completed and signed Replication Rights Form and additional documentation as defined on the form. In the event you are replicating the unpublished music of friends or associates, a ‘granting of rights’ letter is required to support your claim of permission. Full track listings (audio) are required to verify the digital content of each master.
you can download a REPLICATION RIGHTS FORM or MECHANICAL LICENSING BROCHURE right here. You can also log on to www.cmrra.ca to learn more about “pay as you press” mechanical licensing, and to search the publisher database.
