    I have a group of students who are performing Just My Imagination from Ain’t Too Proud To Beg credits from the show state from the Motown Library. We have sheet music and it says the original credits of the creators. Is this okay to use for IE’s?

    Hi Randy,

    Thank you for reaching out for clarification. After doing some research, our team has determined that this song is not acceptable for IEs at this time. The guidelines state that popular songs that have been used in a published work for the theatre are acceptable only if they are publicly available for sale in a vocal selection, musical score, or libretto. From our research we only found the original sheet music available for sale. When the Broadway vocal selection or musical score has been published, that would then be acceptable to use.

    Please let me know if you have any further questions.
