IJA Music Policy
(Auto-translate this page with the orange triangle in top right corner.)
By entering any IJA competition you agree that the IJA has performance rights for all of your music.
Complete listings of the music covered by the IJA’s licensing is available here:
If your music is not covered by these licenses you will need to obtain permission from both the composer and performer.
There are two sorts of license needed to use music on a DVD: one for the composition and one for the recording. They are called the master use license and synch rights. You will need to obtain both licenses for each piece of music you use. For original music you may use the form provided at the bottom of this page.
The IJA, along with our DVD replication company, will determine if the proof of publishing rights are adequate. This decision cannot be made at the festival.
If you cannot obtain adequate proof of publishing rights your music will be dubbed over on the DVD.
There are many more and most of them will let you listen to the music on their web site before you buy the rights.
