Music License FAQ
What does royalty free mean?
Royalty free means you only need to pay for the license to use the song when you initially purchase the song. You don't need to pay additional or ongoing fees for each person who sees or uses it.
Am I allowed to modify the item that I purchased?
Yes. You can customize our items to fit the needs of your end product.
IS This music exclusive?
No. Anyone who purchases the music may use it.
Can I get Exclusive music?
Can I use this music in My YouTube or Twitch video where I will make a profit?
Yes. Royalty free means once you purchase the song, you may use it in as many projects as you want for profit.
Can I use music in an audio-only end product such as a podcast, audiobook, or guided meditation?
Yes, 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.
Can I resell the music for profit?
No, you may not resell the music in whole or part for profit. For example, you may use the music as a theme song for your channel and profit off of that. However, you cannot create an intro animation and sell the music along with the animation for profit. The buyer may come to this site and purchase the license for themselves to use. It's only $6, come on.
Can I Share the music with some else to use for a project?
No. They must purchase their own copy of the license for the music. You aren't just purchasing the song, you are purchase the royalty-free license to use the song.
I received a "matched third party content" copyright notice via YouTube about a piece of music used on my YouTube video you created. Why is that?
YouTube takes copyright infringement seriously, its Content ID audio detection system is aggressive and will occasionally display a copyright notice on videos with music that is similar to something in their database. This typically isn't a bad thing, it simply means YouTube has found some material in your video it thinks is owned by someone else. To clear this notice, you simply need to let YouTube know that you have licensed the music and have the rights to use it.
Can I purchase your music and use it in a broadcast?
Yes and no. A broadcast is different than a live stream or monetized video. The license purchased here does not cover broadcast. Please Contact Me directly for use in broadcast licensing.
What Is A Broadcast?
My Music Licenses defines Broadcast as:
(a) Traditional television or radio broadcast (e.g. terrestrial, cable or satellite TV, broadcast radio); or
(b) Mobile or online substitutes for traditional television or radio broadcast (e.g. mobile TV, IPTV (streaming TV or video-on-demand), streaming radio)
Online broadcast is considered to include online content services which distribute professional, syndicated Broadcast content, such as Netflix, Hulu, or other internet television providers. Streaming web video is everything else, including videos uploaded to your personal or business website and on user generated content networks such as YouTube or Vimeo. My Music License allows for streaming web video. With Broadcast use however, you'll need one a Broadcast Licenses, and there may be limitations on your allowed audience size depending on the price. There are no audience size limitations for non-Broadcast streaming web video.
