- Select usage
To license a song, you must first identify the type of license you need. Select the type from the popup list and press the Request License button. See the publishing terms page if you are not sure what kind of license you need.
- Enter the requested license information
Depending on the type of license selected, you will see a form requesting further details about your use of the song. Enter all required fields and any optional ones that apply to your request. Press the Continue button to complete the form.
- Add more songs or finalize your request
If you want to license additional songs on the same type of license, you can return to the search engine or list of songs and repeat steps 1-2. At step 3, choose the same license type from the popup list to add the song to your current license request. It is not necessary to re-enter the requested license information, but some license types require a playing time to be specified for each song. When you are finished adding songs, click on the Finalize Request button to submit your license request.
- Login or create an account
If this is your first license request, you need to create an account on the system. If you already have an account, enter your user name and password to continue.

If you created a new account in the previous step, you need to enter the required contact information to complete your license request. If you have previously requested a license, the system will display the information provided on the previous request. Please review the form and correct any information which has changed.
