Our online license agreement caters for business and personal users with a range of license options. It is a Royalty-free Stock Music License that is Non-Exclusive and runs in perpetuity in any territory. The licensed music needs to be synchronised with other media and must be an accompaniment, not the main feature. You cannot resell the music, make derivative works or claim it as your own. You cannot redistribute it, sell it or share it.
What does all this mean?
- Royalty-free music – Often misunderstood, but it simply means that once licensed, no more royalties are due – For more information see Royalty Free Music explained.
- Stock music – Pre-made music written by composers and producers offered in a library for use in media in return for a payment.
- Non-exclusive – Anyone else can license and use the same music.
- Perpetuity – Forever, no time limit.
- Any territory – This basically means that the music can be used anywhere in the world.
- Synchronised – Must be used in a video or in an audio podcast and be combined with voice/images. It cannot be music on its own.
- Must be an accompaniment – The music has to be a supporting part of your video or audio podcast. It cannot be the main feature.
- Cannot resell – You cannot sell our music anywhere or put it in revenue systems. Want to earn from our music? See our affiliate scheme.
- No derivative works – You cannot make your own music with our music. For example, you cannot rap over it or add an instrument to make a new song.
- Cannot claim it as your own – The music is ours and you cannot claim it as your music.
- No redistribution – You cannot give the music away for free; you cannot share or distribute it or put it on other libraries.
