Could I have a copy of the haddock soup recipe please?




This is the sort of unhelpful replies you can expect to find here, although the others are quite right, in that you do need clearance.

However, having gone through clearance with EMI as a test, it just is not worth it. They wanted 50% writers credits and 100% mechanicals, just for 2% of warbling from a 70's soul singer who did not see a penny of it. We agreed to that because we just wanted the record out there to increase the gigs for that artist.

If you are a label in the underground I would just go ahead and release it, and I can guarantee you won't be in court because they only look for hits and the chance of money. Admittedly, this could happen, so deal with it by disolving the label if need be, but that is extreme and unlikely to happen. Meanwhile, your name is out there and you will be on your way.

Many famous artists use samples and people like Will i am really need to be careful, and this is probaly what is scaring you. We got our own back by not registering the track with PPL or PRS. They will whistle for their royalties and see nothing and neither will we, but the track is a dancefloor legend now for that artist and has often been played on late night Radio 1. It was worth it for the bookings.
