Would you like to know the legal realities of posting cover songs on YouTube in 2017?
There are obviously countless videos on YouTube that feature independent artists doing their own versions of popular songs. How do they get away with it? And how can you do it too without getting into trouble?
Do you need a mechanical license or a sync license? Do you just post one and hope nobody takes it down?
There’s a LOT of confusion about posting cover songs on YouTube, copyright, getting permission, and more. Plus, there have been a lot of changes in how YouTube handles this matter in recent years.
On this short episode I share part of an interview with Peter Hollens, a YouTube indie music star who has amassed 1.5 million subscribers and 222 million channel views – using cover songs as his primary fan-attraction magnet.
Peter sets the record straight and lays out exactly how YouTube cover songs work in 2017 and beyond.
