Q. What Is
Royalty Free Music?
A. Instead of paying each time you use a piece of music, the infinite.am Royalty Free Agreement grants you what might be called a lifetime cover (a 99 year term). This form of licensing lets you use the music worldwide as many times as you like for a one time charge. Your licensed uses include audio, video, industrial films and slide presentations as well as multimedia, television, radio and satellite broadcast.
Copyright Free mean the same as Royalty Free?
A. No, the term Copyright free is a misnomer. Even if a piece of music is in the public domain, the sound recording is probably under copyright. Other so called Liscence Free approaches can be misleading as well. While they avoid the work of signing a license agreement, they also avoid spelling out the rights you think you are buying.
rights am I buying out when I purchase Royalty Free
A. Basically there are 3 rights you need for AV/Video: Mechanical, Synchronization and Public Performance. The mechanical right lets you re-record the music from a purchased CD. The synchronization right lets you put the music into time relationship with a picture. Finally, you need the Public Performance Right. Your infinite.am Royalty Free Agreement provides you with all 3 important rights.
Q. What if my
friend at another facility asks if he can use the music?
A. Tell your friend that your license doesnt cover this use. You may not lend, share or distribute the music (or sound effects). Your license is granted to one individual business and site.
Q. Can I
charge my clients a fee for the Music?
A. You can charge your clients for the music you include in their projects when you also add other audio and/or visual elements. Your investment in a Royalty free library from infinite.am can provide you with significant added revenue. In fact, its very possible that youll pay for your library purchase with your very first production.
Q. Can I use
infinite.am Premium Quality Royalty Free Music for a trade show?
A. Yes, even if you are producing an AV/Video project for a client who will actually be the exhibitor. It is a good idea to always supply your client with a copy of your infinite.am Royalty Free Agreement along with your invoice. Some shows do require exhibitors to prove their right to use music.
if my project will be broadcast. Is there any problem?
A. No problem at all. We do request that you list infinite.am on your acknowledgements. There is no additional fee of any kind for broadcast use. If you are a broadcaster, you would be covered under your agreement with infinite.am.
Q. Can I use
the music in a commercially available audio phono record or
visual release (a CD, Cassette, Video Cassette, etc.)?
A. Yes, when the music is combined with other audio and/or visual elements added by you, the Licensee.
Q. What if
the infinite.am Royalty Free Agreement changes?
A. While infinte.am do reserve the right to change the terms of its Royalty Free Agreement without notice, changes over the years have been few. Whats important to remember is that when you fully execute your infinite.am agreement, its provisions and the rights youve purchased remain in effect for the full length of its term.
