    Obtaining A License To use Artist Names In Products

    Hi,

    I was planning on selling products online, such as t-shirts, with band names and band song titles on the products. I do realize there might be some issues, and that I'll need a license. How does one go about getting a license to sell these products from the band I'll be using?

    Thanks.

    I am far from an expert on this subject, but I am pretty sure that the record lables would not be willing to sell off the rights to use a band's name to someone else. They want to have full control over how the band's name is used. You might have better luck trying to re-sell the band's official t-shirts.

    Well, I've seen websites that got licenses to sell these music shirts and other stuff. They might have to pay a percentage to the label companies, but they DO have the right to sell Now... how do I get that license?

    You find out who owns the rights you want to license and ask them for their written permission.
