Compulsory License

effrey Brabec, Vice President of Business Affairs for the Chrysalis Music Group, talks about compulsory licenses. Compulsory licenses are an exception to copyright law in regards to songs. They allow anyone to re-record a song without the permission of the music publisher, provided the person pays the statutory rate and the song has been recorded and released. Brabec points out that the license takes a monopoly away from the writer and publisher. This is beneficial because it demonstrates songs can go into a number of genres.
