Hi,

I am planning to publish sheet music of my solo guitar arrangements of copyright material (pop songs etc). Is there a blanket license fee I can pay? I hope I would not have to track down every publisher of every song, as I plan to release many songs. The sheet music will be available to purchase online and worldwide.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Mike

Hi Mike,

Unfortunately I am not aware of any blanket licence for publishing arrangements. You could contact PRSfor Music or the Music Publishers Association, who at the very least can certainly help to put you in touch with the relevant copyright owners, who are generally the music publishers.

Here are a couple of links which may be helpful:

PRS on arrangements
Music Publishers Association scroll down to see the last question on arrangements
Music Sales Group how to license arrangements
