How to License Lyrics

All of the song lyrics in The Flutter of Angels' Wings are available for NON-EXCLUSIVE license rights. Each song is individually licensed for the nominal fee of $1.00 per year plus 2.5 cents per unit produced. The initial fee should be paid prior to receiving licensing, additional royalties are paid according to a schedule. Royalties are then paid quarterly (once every 3 months) assuming a minimum of $10 royalty has been accrued. If less than $10 royalty has accrued during the 12 month period, then the accrued royalty plus the $1.00 license fee are paid at the time of song renewal.

Contact Pat to license.

An example follows:

A musician wishes to license the 3 "songs" Sing of Your Strength, Fires of Faith, and Vanity.

He pays $3.00 up front to license the lyric rights for the next 12 months beginning Jan 15, 2012.

Sing of Your Strength is developed into a song for his CD. He burns 1000 CDs, (1000 * 0.025 = $25.00) in March.

Fires of Faith is developed into a song for music download only. There are 100 downloads in the first quarter (100 * 0.025 = $2.50), 100 downloads in the second quarter ($2.50), 200 downloads in the 3rd quarter ($5.00), and zero downloads in the 4th quarter.

Vanity is never developed into a song for sale, and musician decides not to renew.

The quarterly payment schedule would be like this:

End of April - $25.00 + $2.50 = $27.50
End of July - $2.50 is less than $10.00, no payment
End of October - $2.50 + $5.00 is less than $10.00, no payment
End of January - $7.50 + $2.00 renewal = $9.50

Any song lyrics licensed and developed into a song for sale or free distribution will be advertised on this site if the composer wishes.
