Re: Cheer Leading Music for Contest
This same situation came up with one of our campuses. I recommended that the cheer sponsor find the fight song on iTunes and purchase it. If they use a recording purchased on iTunes (or any commercial recording) all they have to show is the purchase receipt. It was much easier than obtaining the rights to record our band playing essentially the same thing.
If they can't find a commercial recording close enough to use, the UIL website has made it real easy to obtain the proper license. https://www.uiltexas.org/files/spirit/Quick_and_Easy_Licensing_Suggestion_for_Band_Music.pdf.pdf
