What is Royalty Free Music
All commercially recorded music is controlled by Copyright Law and the use of this music without permission infringes copyright and is a criminal offence.
To seek clearance on this music can be expensive and time consuming. The media producer will need to approach the owner of the composition and the sound recording.
We own the copyright to all the compositions and sound recordings found in our library.
Therefore we are in a position to grant you a licence to use the music on your productions.
On each purchase you will also receive a lifetime licence allowing you to dub the music onto your productions. As part of the licence you will also be able to make as many copies of your production, without paying any further fees.
Royalty Free Music / Copyright Free Music or Buyout music
is a licence granting the end user / producer the right
to use music on aLL their audio/visual productions without
paying any further royalties. The music is pre cleared for
use, removing the need to pay any ‘mechanical’
synchronization/ dubbing fees ( in the UK these are termed
MCPS fees). It’s simple and cost effective saving
the producer time and money as the same music can be used
on aLL their future productions.
Our licence covers all commercial productions worldwide
and can be used for:
Corporate Video / DVD
Training Video / DVD
Commercial Video / DVD
Point of Sale Video / DVD
Amateur/ student productions
Photographic Slideshow and Previews
Music on Hold
Websites and Podcasts
You pay only for the cost of the music and then you
are licensed to place it onto your production and sell
the production on to your clients or customers. You
can extend and modify the music with no restrictions
on the number of copies you wish to make of your production.
The licence has no renewal fees and covers your lifetime.
Some of our composers are PRS (Performing Rights Society) members which means when a programme using their music
from our library is broadcast on TV/ Radio they should
receive a payment from PRS after the transmission of
the programme. PRS collect money on behalf of composers
from broadcasters to cover the performance of music
on their channels. As a producer of a programme it is
important to understand that you will not be paying
any further fees as it is the responsibility of the
broadcaster to pay these fees to PRS. We have granted
you the dubbing rights covered by the price of the CD
and so the only thing we ask is that if your programme
is broadcast please send the broadcaster the following
details to ensure the right composers receive the correct
1. The track title of the music
2. The composer's name : this can be found on our cds
3. The duration of music used
This information forms part of a cue
sheet, a example of which can be downloaded
here. This information is passed onto the broadcaster
with your programme.

and exempt from any performance royalties. This means
you can play the music in a public area and simply pay
