The challenge with podcast music-licensing: annual renewals
Posted on: 13 septembre 2019, by : Stuart Dredge

If you read our report of the event we ran with the BPI in June, you’ll already be well aware that licensing music for podcasts is… challenging. Now Billboard has published an interesting feature outlining some of those problems in more detail.
It explains some of the basics: for example that licensing a song for a podcast is like a sync deal, so needs permission from the recording and composition rightsholders.
But the part that stood out to us: “An annual track license generally costs between $500 and $2,000 for the master recording, plus the same amount for publishing, sources say, and must be renewed for a podcast to remain online”.
