Hello everyone! I work for RightsFlow, a licensing and royalty service provider. We also have a service called Limelight that makes it simple for artists and labels to clear cover songs and secure necessary mechanical licenses. Hope that you are enjoying a wonderful holiday season with family and friends. We put together a little ode to the holidays on our Limelight blog http://www.songclearance.com/blog today: ‘Twas the day before Christmas and all through the land Every creature was tuning, getting ready to jam. The amps were plugged in throughout studios everywhere, in anticipation of recording many new covers with flair. Our mascot named Olive was passed out on the couch, awaiting Santa’s arrival with his big yummy treat-filled pouch. With Alex in bowtie, Emily, Gideon and Michael a-ready, the Limelight crew prepared to serve helpful hints smart and steady. When out through the speakers there arose sounds new yet familiar that warmed up the room and made us all instantly less chillier. From states across the US and from the world big and wide bands were covering any song, and covering with pride. Because Limelight is easy and makes licensing a breeze Musicians could now cover any song that they pleased Copyright compliant and a friend to songwriters, Limelight clears release for covers every day and all nighters. So rockers and crooners, guitarists and groups a cappella Are playing and sharing with new fans: both gals and fellas. Fiddlers and harpists, jazz trumpeters and choirs are releasing downloads, ringtones and discs that inspire. Thanks for YOUR music: we love what YOU do, Keep rehearsing, recording and letting us hear songs anew. We all love a good cover, and they are fun to play, So turn it up to 11 and keep creating each day. For your friends here at Limelight are ready to help to pay songwriters and publishers and be your good elf. Merry Christmas to you and much melody, music and good cheer, For the time has now come to start planning your covers for next year. Happy Holidays to all and to all a groove-filled night, from the team here at RightsFlow, the crew behind Limelight. (cue your favorite holiday cover song) Warmly, Michael Kauffman http://www.rightsflow.com http://www.songclearance.com http://www.twitter.com/michaeljoel http://www.twitter.com/rightsflow http://www.twitter.com/coversong http://www.facebook.com/rightsflow http://www.facebook.com/coversong

Hello hypebot community, Hope that everyone has had a great summer! I oversee sales and marketing initiatives at RightsFlow http://www.rightsflow.com , a licensing and royalty service provider. We represent artists, labels, distributors and online music services and help them license, account and pay songwriters and publishers. We recently launched Limelight http://limelight.rightsflow.com , a simple way for artists to clear any cover song. Designed by musicians for musicians, Limelight provides an easy way to secure the needed mechanical license for your CD, download and ringtone release. We just collaborated on a video with singer-songwriter Samantha Murphy (http://www.samanthamurphy.com ) sharing and showing the service (the launch was featured last week in a post on hypebot http://bit.ly/a264ka ). We're excited about music discovery sites, communities and listening to new music. Please feel free to share your music and links with us. Thanks! Warmly, Michael Kauffman http://www.twitter.com/coversong http://www.facebook.com/coversong

Could be a very useful feature as you point out. Although many labels still need to take the initial steps of integrating and promoting Twitter (and other social media communities) on their own sites. Make your verified label and artist accounts easy to find to your fan. Wherever they are looking most frequently.
