140 sounds a lot for a single track. In the UK the MCPS charges 6.5% of Retail Price x number of copies made. That's for the whole CD and is split between all the tracks. You don't pay for tracks which are non-copyright.

A run of 500 CDs to be sold at 10 each would cost 325 assuming all the tracks were copyright. Assuming 12 tracks of equal length, that's 27.08 per track. However for that number you could get a Limited Manufacture Licence for 163.40/13.62 per track.

Different countries may have different rates but it still sounds a lot to me. Did you provide the website with information on all the tracks on the CD or just that one?
