Re: Remixes of Popular Worship songs
Unfortunately that is not true Trav. You would still need a mechanical license. If you were to use the actual recording you would need a master use license as well. But if you take “How Great Is Our God” and sing it yourself, you still need a mechanical license. Its just A LOT cheaper to obtain a mechanical license than it is a master license. Check out http://www.harryfox.com for info on the licenses you need to distribute your material, whether its for sale or not. Its based on how many times its given out, not how much money is made on it.
These licenses are often decently cheap, so if anyone is looking to remix or rework something like this, just go through the proper channels. It will be worth your time and money to do it right.
