For current royalty rate information, please review the Statutory Royalty Rates page. Please note that a mechanical license does not include the right to reproduce an already existing sound recording. That is a separate right, called a Master Use Right, which must be procured from the copyright owner of such sound recording.
HFA issues mechanical licenses that are valid for products manufactured and distributed in the USA (including its territories and possessions) only. If you wish to import recordings manufactured outside of the U.S. into the country, you will need to obtain an import license.
