What are the Factors Affecting Negotiations for Sample Licenses?
1. Release of Record Prior to Clearance will ensure a higher quote to settle the matter
2. The duration and content of Sample
3. Multiple Publishers: Where multiple publishers own a piece of the sampled recording, each has to sign off on the usage, complicating the process and adding to the payments
4. Multiple Samples on Same Record: Where there are multiple samples on one Master recording, the clearance process is again more complicated and satisfying the various copyright owners may cost more than the mechanical income generated on the new song.
