What are the benefits of a PRO license?

COMMERCIAL USE

All of our Music Licenses allow use for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. E.g. You can create a product with our music and sell it.

ALL LICENSES ARE ROYALTY FREE

Royalty Free means you just need to pay for rights to use the item once per end product. You don’t need to pay additional or ongoing fees for each person who sees or uses it. Buyers also should not have to pay any further fees to a collecting society or performing rights organization. In other terms, you pay once and you forgetE.g. You pay one time and relax.

YOU GET THE BEST SOUND QUALITY

With the purchase of a PRO license, you get download links to the WAV and high quality MP3 version. E.g. You obtain that crispy sound full of good frequencies and your customers can enjoy your videos.

YOU CAN CUSTOMIZE THE TRACK

With the purchase of a PRO license, you can customize the track to fit the needs of your end product. The end product is what you build with that music, such as a video on youtube. E.g. You can cut the song and use the part you enjoy the most in your project.

YOU CAN CREATE AUDIO-ONLY PRODUCTS

With a PRO license, you can use the music in an audio-only end product such as a podcast, audiobook, or guided meditation as long as the audio-only end product is larger in scope and different in nature than the music itself. E.g. You can use a relaxing music background to underscore your guided meditation voiceover recordings and sell a CD of this to your spa customers.

FREE WIDE DISTRIBUTION WEB

As long as it’s all the same end product, you can distribute it via different mediums without having to purchase new licenses. E.g. With a TV/Radio Ad single license, you could play your commercial online and on international TV.

YOU CAN BUY IT ON YOUR CLIENT’S BEHALF

Freelancer and agencies can buy the music track license on their client’s behalf. Whether a regular, Extended or TV/Radio Ad License is needed will depend on your client’s use of the end product. With all different PRO licenses available you are allowed to charge your client for creating the End Product. E.g. If you are creating an after effects advertisement campaign for a client, you can buy an extended TV/Radio Ad License and charge your client for creating the videos.

ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS

WHAT TO GET, A “STANDARD LICENSE”, “EXTENDED LICENSE” OR A “NATIONAL TV/RADIO ADVERTISING LICENSE”. The Music Licenses differ in their limitations on use and reproductions or broadcast audience, depending on which option you choose. Further details concerning their uses are available bellow.
UNLIMITED USES OPTION. Regular PRO license is single-application. However, you can contact us for an unlimited uses quote. Purchasing the multi-use option allows use of the music track in an unlimited number of end products.
SINGLE APPLICATION PERMITS MULTIPLE VARIATIONS. Allowed variations of an end product that are still considered a single application include Cut-downs – a shortened version of an end product where no new content has been added (e.g. a 15 second “teaser” version of a film trailer). e.g. if you have 3 identical ads with just minor text changes, just one license is fine. If you use a single template to create ads for 3 different products/services, you should purchase 3 separate licenses.
AVAILABILITY. Your license continues valid even if an item is removed from sale. We highly recommend you download your music track as soon as you have licensed it.
USING THE MUSIC FOR AN AUDIO-ONLY END PRODUCT. With a PRO license, you can use the music in an audio-only end product such as a podcast, audiobook, or guided meditation as long as the audio-only end product is larger in scope and different in nature than the music itself. As a rule of thumb, the music alone must not comprise the primary value of the end product, and should have speech overlayed and interspersed throughout. You can never distribute the music track as-is or with superficial modifications. You cannot sell the music track as a stand-alone song (e.g. you can’t add lyrics to an audio track and sell it on iTunes.). In the event of resale, the music must be synchronized with another media. It is therefore forbidden to resell and/or appropriate music tracks in isolation even if one or multiple sounds or vocals are added. Example: You can use a relaxing music background to underscore your guided meditation voiceover recordings and sell a CD of this to your spa customers.
CREDITS. After the purchase of a PRO LICENSE, it’s not mandatory to give credit. However we do encourage that if your end product has credits as part of its design (such as a film or TV show), please credit us. Also, as the author retains ownership of the music track, you shouldn’t claim copyright in the item.
IF EXCEDED THE LIMITATIONS. If you need to exceed the limitations of your license in the future, you can upgrade your license. For assistance please contact the Help Team with your username or email address the account was created with and the name(s) of the music track(s) in question. This information will enable the Help Team to assist you in the most efficient way possible. You can create a new Help Ticket at royaltyfreemusiclibrary.net/support.
ALL LICENSES ARE NON EXCLUSIVE. All the licenses sold here are NON-exclusive. This means that you are not the only person with access to them. Others will also be licensing and using the same music track.
RESTRICTIONS OF USE. Our music cannot be used for sensitive subjects. Sensitive subjects are those that could be offensive or highly unflattering to the author or put them in a bad light (using a reasonable standard), such as medical and health issues, sexual activity, pornography (adult content), substance abuse, tobacco use, or immoral or illegal activity. This is not an exhaustive list so if you’re not sure, contact Support.
PROTECTION. You should not permit end users of the end product to extract the licensed track from the end product. You should do this by technological means if feasible, or by other means, like in the user terms for your end product.
YOU CANNOT RESELL THE MUSIC. You can’t license a track and then make them available to others ‘as-is’ (that is, as a stand-alone song), regardless of which license you purchase.
YOU SHALL USE IT ONE TIME MAX. Our licenses are single application. A single application means one unique end product. You should purchase one license for each different product.
NON TRANSFERABLE. Your license is not transferable. EXCEPT IF you are a freelancer / agency using the music track for a single end product for one client. The license would in effect be transferred to the client. In that case, be sure to point the client / customer / recipient to the license terms and delete the music track from your own systems. Once you transfer the end product to the client (eg giving them source files for the item), be sure to link your client to our licenses and delete the track itself from your computer.E.g. If you create a video for a client using a folk song, you should give him the song and the final video, and then delete the track from your computer as the final product is finished. A license is applicable to one person or company only. If you are in the business of selling projects such as corporate videos, websites or messages on hold to several clients you must buy a license for each of them or contact us to negotiate a multiple client license. If you are not sure if your use is covered, contact us through Support and we’ll do our best to help you out.
