    Interpolation Clearances

    I know that samples can cost Artists a LOT of cash to clear but what about interpolations? What I mean is when they replay part of another song. Well thats what I think interpolation means. ive seen it in album covers etc. So how much do the artists have to pay to clear interpolations compared to samples?

    it depends on the publishing house that administers the copyright. There is no flat fee. It's whatever the artist is willing to pay combined with how valuable the publishing house thinks the song is.

    If the publisher is affiliated with the Harry Fox Agency, you can get it cheap.

    most publishers are affiliated with HFA, and it depends on what the sample is.

    Y'all remember that Erick Sermon song 'Music', with the Marvin Gaye sample? He got those vocals from the end of a greatest hits cd. They weren't even a song really. Marvin was just kinda freestyling acapella.

    He paid $200,000 for that ONE vocal sample that no one ever knew existed!

    So again...depending on what the song is, it's history and it's value.

    You're right, if your using an origianl sound recording. I thought he was talking about if you remake the song. If you remake the song, then it's affordable. If you sample the original recording, then they tax the **** out of you.

    Quick. How many notes can you get away with playing before it’s legally considered interpolation?
