  • Prices, release date and licenses
    1. Category prices. You must choose a price category from one of four price categories.

Mid: equivalent to a standard or common prince in each channel. Full: equivalent to a higher or more expensive than the standard price. Premium: equivalent to the more expensive price. 2. Release dates. Depending on the date indicated in this section, the album will be published in the channels sooner or later.

If the album is distributed after the release date, it will be directly published within the 2 to 10 work days, from its distribution. 3. License. You can choose between two main types of license, these are: Copyright or Creative Commons.

Karaoke exceptions: The karaoke track titles can refer to the original artist. Please, use sentences to clarify that these artist aren't the performers. Use sentences as “Originally Performed by... (original artist name)”. 3. Name of the original artist in the track or album’s titles.

You can obtain a license through different online services, as for example You need the license only in case that the adapted songs belong to an Anglo-Saxon area. If the songs are from a latin area, South America and Occidental Europe - excluding Aglo-Saxon countries - it is enough to mention at the track level the original composer and the publishing house (label and/or producer rights owner) assigning their correspondent roles. For versions from territories that we don't comment here, please, contact our Support team. If the version modifies substantially the work, as a radical variation of the lyrics/musical content, you must present a more specific rights owner permission to distribute the content. The documentation reported has to be contrastable and true. Attention: Do not confuse the term "version" or "cover" with a "remix". If you did a remix or if you are using any recording sample that belongs to another person, you will have to request the authorization from the original master owner. 8. Continuous mixes and DJ sets.

  • Artist or band names
    Please, be sure to accomplish all the following requirements in order to distribute your release correctly, thereby preventing additional updates and other arrangements that would imply additional costs to the distribution. 1. Artist name choice.

Primary artist assignation. The main artist of an album, must appear as the primary throughout the complete album. 3. Format. The spelling of the artist name, must be correct and consistent across the entire contents of that artist 4. Composer.

Non classical music composers have to appear at both levels (track and release). If there are more than 4 composers appearing in all tracks we will have to use “Various Composers” instead to list them one by one. At the album's level you can use all roles as wanted, as long as all the involved ones (producers, performers, composers, etc.) appear in all tracks without exception. 5. Other information. The artist's name must not include any additional information, such as his role, dates, instrument, former band, webpage, etc. 6. "Various Artists" use.

For example, if it's about a band, the band name must appear as primary artist and the members names as performers. 7. Incorrect Display of "Various Artists". Variations or abbreviations of "Various Artists" (eg "V/A", "VA", "Various", "Various Artist" or similar) should not be used as an artist name for the content in English.

Two or more performers or groups in the same artist field is considered a compound artist, although artists who are generally listed together as a band are not considered compound artists and can or must be listed together. If it is not the case, and there is more than one performing artist, each artist must be listed individually and assigned as Primary. 9. Generic Artists. Generic artists such as “Chorus”, “Orchestra”, and “Singer”, are not accepted in any genre. The artist names should be specific to a person, a group or band, a show or a production. 10.
