How Is Royalty Free Music Licensed?
do not need to license the productions in which you use the music, there is no
annual license fee and there are no additional fees when you use the music in
your productions. But you do need to understand that you don't own the music
and you are not permitted to give the music to anyone else for their
productions, or to resell the music in an unsynchronized format.
Royalty Free Stock Music is most often used in commercials, multimedia projects
& presentations. You can continue to use the music in any number of presentations
that you create.
While it may appear that all licensing purchase options work via the honor
system, in reality each Stock Music Library vigorously protects its proprietary
material, and expects producers to use library music responsibly. In all cases,
as a producer who uses licensed music, make sure that you receive a written
license that outlines your rights and responsibilities.
Stock Music Libraries make
copyright clearance for use in your production very easy. The music library
owners hold the copyright for all the music in their catalogue. They can
provide and license the music for synchronization rights directly to you, as
StockMusic.com does through our End User License Agreement
