What Can I Use Royalty Free Music For?

That’s a question we get asked many times, and we’re always happy to confirm how it’s OK to use our royalty free music  🙂  All the examples given here of how to use royalty free music are  included in our  licenses at www.royalty-free.tv.

Using Royalty Free Music

Royalty free music is designed to be used as background music. The technical term for this is “synchronised”, which simply means the music is synchronised in time with another media, for example pictures.


Typical uses for royalty free music are:

  • TV shows and commercials
  • Radio Productions – for example commercials, beds for voiceovers
  • Film / Movie for theatrical release
  • In software, physical or downloadable.  For example, computer game.
  • Corporate video, DVD, trade show, training videos, presentations.
  • Shareware / Freeware games
  • Music On Hold – telephone system
  • Online video – streamed via hosting sites such as youtube etc.
  • Podcast – background music for voiceover, introduction theme tune etc.
  • Student film and film festivals
  • Educational uses (school projects etc. not for sale)

Royalty Free Music Licensing

It’s usual for the permission (license) to be made out to you as the producer or maker of the media project.  This means it’s for you to use in your project, but you can’t re-sell the music to someone else.  Of course, selling your project (movie, game etc.) is fine, that’s how royalty free music is designed to help you,  by keeping your costs down.

For full details of what a royalty free music license covers, you can find ours  at http://www.royalty-free.tv/rftv/royalty_free_music_license.htm.  It’s a legal document, but it’s easy to read and understand, written in plain terms.  It’s worth checking out 🙂

We have over 8000 royalty free music files available to download  at www.Royalty-Free.tv, used by media producers worldwide.

Using Royalty Free Music on “Youtube” video sites

Friday, September 11th, 2009

We often get asked if it’s OK to use our Royalty Free Music on Youtube and other video websites – well the simple answer is “Yes, you can”!  At www.royalty-free.tv we offer a ‘standard’  license, which allows you to use our music tracks on internet video websites such as Youtube, Myspace, Facebook etc.  We have 1000’s of music tracks available in pretty much every style you can think of!  Simply find the track or tracks in the style you you want by genre (rock, pop, horror etc) or by instrument, mood or tempo, at our search page http://www.royalty-free.tv/rftv/frameset.htm, then follow our simple checkout procedure. You can then download the track in WAV or MP3 format, and use it in your video before uploading to Youtube, Facebook etc.

You can even make your videos available for sale, simply by upgrading our “Standard” license to a “Full License” for a few dollars more.  Select and upgrade the music you’ve used in your video by visiting http://www.royalty-free.tv/rftv/frameset.htm and clicking “advanced search” in the left menu.  In the search box in the page that appears, type in the track title (for example slicks), click “go” and you’ll see the music track in the search results that appear.  Click “add to cart” and then select “upgrade” in the license page pop-up that appears.  Simply checkout as before, download the track(s) again if you need them – and you’re cleared to sell the music as part of your Video!
