  • What is a Sync License?
    This is a agreement that lets you use a song or music piece in a visual project such as a film, ad, or TV show.
  • What is a Composition?
    This is the original song or music, including any lyrics and melody. It might be written by one or more people. You need to get a license for each song that you want to use.
  • What is a Master Recording?
    This is the actual recording of the song or music. Things like using a cover song or making your own recording can affect how you get permission for the master recording.
  • In terms of licensing music, what is Media?
    These are the platforms where your project will be shown (like the internet, TV, or film festivals). The more platforms you want to use, the more the license will cost.
  • What is meant by Territory in music licensing?
    This is the area where you want to use the license (like worldwide, Europe, North America). Sometimes, the platforms you want to use can affect the territory of the license. For example, if you're showing a film at a festival, you might only need a license for the United States and Europe. But for something like the internet, it can be hard to limit the territory. The wider the territory, the more the license will cost.
  • What is meant by a licensing Term?
    This is how long you want to use the song or music (like 6 months, 5 years, perpetuity). The longer you want to use it, the more the license will cost.
  • What is the difference between exclusive and non-exclusive license?
    An exclusive license grants the licensee the sole right to use the music track for specified purposes, within defined parameters such as geographic location, media type, and duration of use. During the term of an exclusive license, the licensor agrees not to grant others the same rights for the same use, making the licensee the only party with the right to use the track in the agreed manner. This exclusivity often comes with a higher cost due to the unique access and competitive advantage it provides. In contrast, a non-exclusive license allows the licensor to grant the same usage rights to multiple licensees. This means that while you can use the music track for your project, others can also license and use the same track for their projects, potentially even in similar contexts. Non-exclusive licenses are generally more affordable and offer a flexible option for projects where having a unique music track is not critical.
