Can I register a song with samples?

Last Updated: Jun 20, 2014 02:56PM EDT

Unless you have explicit permission from all concerned parties, it is not possible to register songs with uncleared samples.

Example: you write a song containing a Michael Jackson sample and you don't have clearance from Jackson's label or publisher to use this sample. It's thus not possible to register your song for the collection of songwriting or publishing royalties.
