Licensing a song for use in a mobile app February 24, 2014 5:23 PMSubscribe
I'd like to use the children's song: "There was an old lady who swallowed a fly" in an app for mobile phones. How can I find out who owns the rights to the song and get permission to use it? How much should I expect it to cost?
It was written by Alan Mills, who passed away in 1977.
I'm not looking to use a specific performance/recording of the song, only the lyrics and tune.
I am not resident in the U.S./Canada. The app would be for global distribution. Fair use wouldn't apply.
