I have a few samples on my recording. I've heard that I'm able to include short samples without royalty clearance. Is that true?

No. You need to clear every sample on your recording, regardless of the length of the sample – even if it’s under a second long! Prior to replication, you need to clear all permissions to use each sample on your recording. If you can recognize the original recording (the sample) in any way, you are considered to have taken value. Click here to see what license(s) are required for your project.
