What is music licensing?
Music licensing is the process of syncing music to visual media such as commercials, movies and TV shows.
Will I lose the rights to my music if I work with you?
No, there is no change in ownership of the copyrights for the compositions or master recordings our clients agree to represent. They will only be granted the exclusive right to represent and administrate the publishing of tracks for the purpose of licensing during the term of the agreement.
What tracks are eligible?
We can only accept tracks that do not currently have a publishing or administration deal (including publishing through a record deal). We only work with tracks that are 100% free and clear of publishing in accordance with the requirements of our clients.
Can I submit cover songs or tracks containing uncleared samples?
We are unable to accept cover songs or material that contains uncleared samples from another artist's music.
Where will my music be used?
Working with us gives you the opportunity to have your material pitched to a multitude of exciting projects including commercials, movies, TV shows, video games and web promos.
Can I choose who licenses my music?
Unfortunately you don’t get to choose who licenses your tunes, however we can assure you that they will never be licensed for use in projects that contain inappropriate themes.
Will I be notified when my music has been used?
Royalty statements are sent out in February and August. Unfortunately, we are not able to send notifications regarding licenses between statements.
When will I get paid?
Payments are issued alongside royalty statements via PayPal or international wire transfer.
Will I be credited when my music is used?
TV shows don’t generally credit the tunes they use, unlike movies which list all of the material they feature in addition to the musical score.
Do I need to be a member of a PRO in order to license my music?
In order to work with us you will need to be a member of both a mechanical copyright society and a performing rights society. Most film and television licenses will generate broadcast royalties that you won’t receive otherwise.
