What Is Royalty Free Music?

What is Royalty Free Music?

This is a question we’re often asked, here’s a simple way to define it: “Royalty free music” is music that’s designed to be used in media projects, and can be licensed for a single one-time fee. The term “royalty free” can be confusing, whether used for music or other media such as pictures or video.  A better, more accurately descriptive term would be “license-paid” – however the term ‘royalty free’ has become the generic term associated with the industry.

What Does Royalty Free Music Do?

It offers a simple way to license music to use in media situations, such as TV programmes, films, websites.  Whoever owns the various ‘rights’ to the music must give their permission for their music to be used. Traditionally, the licensing process to do his could be costly and time consuming to arrange, and was usually on a per-use basis. Royalty free music attempts to make this process easier by offering a simple license structure, allowing the media producer permission to use the music repeatedly and in many ways without having to purchase additional licenses.

Reasons to use Royalty Free Music include:

* Licensing is simple and widely available
* Quick and Easy Access to music
* More Cost Effective than traditional licensing
* Peace of mind – you know you’re legally covered
