The Harry Fox Agency, Inc. offers publishers and licensees a single source for licensing and for the collection and distribution of royalties.

HFA Publisher Services

HFA is the premier music publisher agent for mechanical licensing in the United States. A mechanical license grants the rights to reproduce and distribute copyrighted musical compositions (songs), including uses on CDs, records, tapes, and certain digital configurations. By affiliating with HFA, publishers have access to a range of licensing, collection, distribution, royalty compliance and legal services to assist them in administrating their catalog. Due to the large number of affiliated publishers, licensees are often able to complete the majority of their mechanical licensing through HFA.

HFA issues mechanical licenses for products manufactured and distributed in the U.S. (including territories and possessions) only. Our mechanical licenses are only available to U.S. manufacturers or importers with a U.S. address. However, HFA also provides collection and monitoring services to its publisher clients for music distributed and sold in over 90 territories around the world through reciprocal agreements with mechanical rights organizations in those territories.

HFA offers a number of online tools for its affiliated publishers, including the ability to review pending and completed license requests, request the addition and modification of songs in our database, access online versions of our licensing reports and royalty statements, and more.
