If I am selected as a winner in the BCMCC, I grant the BCMCC a mechanical license at no cost to make a recording of my composition, distribute the recording, and to perform my composition. I agree to have the BCMCC perform the world premiere of my composition. If the BCMCC does not perform my work before 1 March 2014, I retain the right to premier my composition. I agree to have the BCMCC make the first recording of my composition. I agree to have the CD recording of my work made available to the general public via release on the label of the BCMCC’s choosing.
