What are the different licenses / price points?
You can purchase most of the music in the music supply with different licenses / price points. We do that so that our tunes can be accessible to folks with any budget. Generally speaking, the higher the cost of a license, the more you can do with the music. Here’s a breakdown…
The indie license allows you to use material in non-commercial (e.g. you are not being paid by a client & you are not using it to sell anything) contexts. This license is a good choice for podcasters, indie film makers, non-sponsored Youtubers, etc.
This includes the same rights as above but also allows you to use the material in most commercial use cases (e.g. for client work, for advertising, etc.) in the digital realm but NOT broadcast media. This license is a good choice for digital design/film production studios, freelance creatives, etc.
This includes the same rights as above but also allows you to use the material in traditional broadcast media (e.g. TV/radio broadcast, broadcast advertising and online equivalents). This license is a good choice for broadcast television/radio producers, design/film production studios, etc.
Paying for this license is effectively paying for the right to use it exclusively. As soon as an item’s “Exclusive License” is purchased, we will remove that item from our marketplace so that no one else can purchase it. This is a good license if you are someone who wants to use a piece of music as your theme song for example. Of course, we can NOT retroactively ‘take back’ that music from anyone who has previously purchased a non-exclusive license, so please be aware of this – but by purchasing an exclusive license, you are limiting any future downloads of the material. This license is a good choice for anyone who wants to use material as exclusively as possible.
Regardless of which license you purchase…
- You can not resell our material.
- You can not claim authorship of our material.
