Wants to Use Poems in Play
If you're a "dot-your-i's" kind of person ... The permissions required are fairly straightforward and include permission to "perform" and "reproduce" the poems and songs. In the case of Leonard Cohen, you'd need permission from the owner of the song (probably a music publisher) but you wouldn't need permission from the owner of the sound recording copyright (the record company). We have permission forms you can adopt for these uses in our permissions book.
