Using music in your story

Music can add so much to a story, so we want to give you the low-down on how to properly credit the music you use in your story.

Any acquirer of content from PRX - station or otherwise, needs to report any ASCAP, BMI, SESAC, SoundExchange or other performing rights licenses in connection with any broadcasts or other, such as digital uses. They need to report the music they play, so you have be certain to fill out all the musical works information when you create your pieces on PRX.

NOTE: You may not upload self-contained, complete musical works or excerpts, except if the music is contained in a longer piece. For legal reasons, pieces may contain music as background, transition, or featured (as in an interview with a musician about a song), but you cannot post a stand-alone, complete or excerpted musical work to PRX. For example, you cannot upload The Rolling Stones' "Satisfaction" to PRX, but you can post a program about the Stones that contains all or part of "Satisfaction."
