Please give us a general idea of what you’re looking for: budget of your production, viewing audience (television, film, online), type of event, etc.
-What type of licenses do you offer?
Virtually, any license imaginable. The type of license that we generally issue is a master/synchronization license, meaning you can use the track with any audiovisual media. We have multiple categories of licenses that cover the vast majority of uses, but sometimes there are special scenarios that require custom licenses. If you do not see the license that suits your project in the tab to the left, please get in touch and we will create a custom license quote just for you.

-What does it mean when a license has 1 Use, multiple uses or Unlimited?
We offer licenses based on Use. “Use” refers to any distributed edit or alteration of the track in ONE production. For example, if you cut the first 10 seconds of the track to match your edit and spliced it with the last 10 seconds of the track, that would be a license for 2 Uses. For a large portion of our catalog, we also offer an Unlimited Use option. You can head over now to our catalog to begin browsing rates and you can purchase licenses for many types of usage directly through our shopping cart.
-How long is the license good for?
This all depends. For a lot of licenses, it is perpetual i.e. forever. For some other instances, it could be 1-5 years. Every license is different. Again, please contact us with any questions. We love questions, really.
