Current American statutory rate: 9.1 cents per song per CD or per digital download – where the playing time is five minutes or less. For each additional minute (or part thereof) 1.75 cents is added to the rate. So, for example – including one of our songs on 100 CDs would cost $9.10.

In Canada the rate is 8.3 cents per song per CD or per digital download – where the playing time is five minutes or less. For each additional minute (or part thereof) 1.66 cents is added to the rate.
