- Who Uses Songtrust
An exception to U.S. copyright law that grants permission to anyone wishing to use a songwriter's work - whether or not the songwriter wants to grant the license - if the song has already been commercially released. Compulsory licenses must be issued for physical reproductions of a song (such as an LP, CD, or digital download), streaming a song, for use in cable television rebroadcast, on the Public Broadcasting System (PBS), or in jukeboxes.
