Music Standard License

The low-down! The nuts and bolts of this license

  1. The Music Standard License grants you, the purchaser, an ongoing, non- exclusive, commercial, worldwide license to make use of the musical work (Item) you have selected, on the following terms. The Licensing FAQs form part of this license.
  2. You are licensed to use the Item in one of the following ways (Allowed Use), in a single application (a single product or project):
    1. synchronisation with an audio-visual or audio-only work, to create one End Product that incorporates the Item as well as other things, so that it is larger in scope and different in nature than the Item;
    2. specific direct playback uses, which are background music for one event, venue or location, one company’s private on-hold music system, or one personal mobile ring-tone.

    Examples of End Products: DVDS, websites, audiobooks, apps, games, online videos (YouTube, Vimeo etc), corporate videos, web promos, live performances, social media, Indie Films.

  3. The license includes the right to utilise the Item through communication to the public (performance), display, distribution, and reproduction (but not through Broadcast). Read the next clause for some limitations, and see later clauses for things that are not Allowed Uses.

    Relax: free or commercial, monetized or not, for-profit or not-for-profit – we don’t mind as long as it’s one Allowed Use! All our Music licenses are “single application” licenses for one product, one use or one project – read on and see the FAQs for more information.

  4. Allowed Uses have these limitations:
    1. For digitally downloaded or physical End Products, there is a limit of 10,000 copies.
    2. Broadcast use is not allowed.
    3. For films, the film may not be theatrically released. (To avoid confusion, use in an Indie Film is an Allowed Use.)
    4. For P.R.O. Music, public performance rights are not included with this license. See clause 14 for more details.

    We have other licenses available which don’t have these limits (i.e. for mass reproduction, wider broadcast, and theatrically released film).
    Examples of downloaded or physical products are downloaded podcasts, apps, downloaded games, downloaded e-books, and DVDs. See the Definitions section to understand what Broadcast and Indie Film mean.

  5. Apart from the limitations in clause 4, there are no restrictions on views or impressions of an End Product containing the Item. For example, there can be unlimited Internet views or page impressions of an End Product.

    Example: your home video uploaded to a user-generated video-sharing platform goes viral and gets over 1,000,000 views. Relax and enjoy the fame, you’re still covered by this license.

  6. You can create one End Product for a client, and you can transfer that single End Product to your client. This license is then transferred to your client.
  7. You can modify or manipulate the Item, or combine the Item with other works, to suit your End Product. The resulting works based on the Item are subject to the terms of this license. You cannot claim ownership of the Item, whether it’s in original form or altered under this clause. You can do the things allowed in this clause as long as the end use is an Allowed Use under clause 2.

    Examples: you can edit, loop or stretch a music track to suit your project. You can’t create a remix of a music track and claim or register it as your own song. See clause 19 for more information about ownership rights in the Item.

  8. Although this is a “single application” license, under one license you may make allowed variations of an End Product and distribute an End Product through multiple mediums, which is detailed in the FAQs.

    Examples of allowed variations: “cut down” versions of a single web promo; language translations of a single video.

    Whoa there! Things you can’t do with the item

  9. This is a “single application” license for one Allowed Use, so you will need a separate license for each different Allowed Use.
  10. You can’t re-distribute the Item as a musical item, as stock, in a tool or template, or with source files. You can’t do this with an Item either on its own or bundled with other items (such as an audio compilation), and even if you modify the Item. You can’t re-distribute the Item as-is or with superficial modifications. These things are not allowed even if the re-distribution is for free.

    Examples: You can’t modify a music track and distribute it on a music CD. You can’t add lyrics over the top of a music track and sell it as your own song on iTunes. You can’t use a music track in your internet radio service.

  11. You can’t use the Item in applications allowing an end user to customise a digital or physical product to their specific needs, such as “on demand”, “made to order” and “build it yourself” applications. You may use the Item in these ways only if you purchase a separate license for each final product created using the Item.

    Examples of this specific “single application” requirement: Online video or animation rendering services, “build your own website” services, photo slideshow creators, and e-card generators. You will need one license for each product created by a customer, or contact us to discuss.

  12. You must not permit an end user to extract the Item and use it separately from an End Product.
  13. You can’t claim trademark or service mark rights over the Item within an End Product.
