Frequently Asked Questions
Music licensing is paying a fee to the rights holder of a musical work to use it in a project.
Please see Music Licenses for more info.
The License Certificate is a legal document and enables you to show any concerned parties or authorities that you have the correct and legal rights to use and perform our copyrighted material within your production.
The License Certificate is also used to clear YouTube copyright notices and prevents advertising from appearing on videos. This is especially important if you are a video producer that has created work for a commercial client and do not wish advertising to appear on their video. If you need assistance with this, please contact us here.
CONTENT ID PROTECTION
Dear YouTube user; Our royalty free music is protected and registered with ContentID ( AdRev ). Don’t worry if you receive a matched third party content’ notice on your video.
A copyright notice does not mean that copyrights have been infringed, and this shouldn’t be confused with a YouTube “copyright strike”. It’s simply a notice to advise that YouTube has detected Content ID registered content within the video, and that further information/action is needed.
You will be easily able to clear this notice and you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.
What to do?
- If you're not monetizing the video which contains the music, then you may just ignore the notice and continue uploading your videos as normal.
- If you want to monetize your YouTube video that contains the music or you just want the onscreen advertising removed, simply visit this page (or copy&paste the link below to your browser), enter your details and video link and copy/paste the contents from your purchased License Certificate into the message box. Claims are removed within 24 – 96 hours.
If you are using our music regularly on your videos or need any help, just send us a message via contact page, and please include a link to your YouTube channel.
ROYALTY FREE MUSIC
First of all, Royalty Free Music doesn't mean free music. 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.
Please note that there may be some limits placed on uses under the different license types. Please see Music Licenses
CAN I USE YOUR TRACK IN A STAND-ALONE MUSIC TRACK?
No. For example, you can't add lyrics to an audio track and sell it on iTunes.
