It is vital that you own the rights to the release that you publish via Record Union. If you want to use copyrighted material you will need approval from the copyright owner(s).
For all material that of which you are not the originator/creator, we need to be able to verify license agreements/written permission from both the publishing house for the songwriter/composer, and from the record label with rights to the master recording. Necessary rights need to be obtained prior to uploading any material to Record Union, and be readily available upon request. We aren’t able to distribute tracks that contain unlicensed samples (whether that be a beat, a vocal hook or even content from TV or Film) and the content team will reach out for permissions when our system detects any sampled material.
