Do I need a license for songs in the Public Domain?

No, songs that are public domain do not require a mechanical license UNLESS you're using a copyrighted arrangement of a public domain work, which may need to be licensed.
In the event a track is deemed "public domain" by our licensing team, we will issue a notice to the US Copyright Office to ensure a license is put in place (in case you are using a copyrighted arrangement). We strongly recommend researching public domain status before placing an order. No refunds will take place.
